Anti-mouse Adiponectin Antibody, Rabbit pAb
Polyclonal Antibody against Mouse Adiponectin
Application: ELISA, WB, IHC
Size: 0.1 mg
Adiponectin, also termed gelatin-binding protein-28 (GBP28), AdipoQ, ACP30 (Acrp30), or apM, is a major adipocyte-secreted adipokine which is abundantly present in the circulation as three distinct oligomeric complexes: LMW(67kDa), MMW(167kDa) and HMW(300kDa) adiponectin. Its levels are decreased in insulin resistance, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Conversely, elevation of circulating adiponectin concentrations can alleviate various vascular dysfunctions in animal models, suggesting this adipokine exerts vasculoprotective effects. In addition, adiponectin may also be of importance in the development and progression of several malignancies.
Recombinant full-length mouse adiponectin expressed in mammalian cells.
The antibody detects mouse/rat adiponectin.
Liquid in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS).
Store at –20°C for less than one week. For long-term storage, aliquot and freeze at -70°C. Avoid repeated freeze/defrost cycles.
Western blot - This antibody can be used at 0.1-0.2 μg/mL with the appropriate secondary reagents to detect mouse/rat adiponectin.
ELISA - This antibody can be used at 0.5-1.0 μg/mL with the appropriate secondary reagents to detect mouse/rat adiponectin.
