  • INTRODUCTION

    Angiopoietin-like protein 4 (ANGPTL4), also known as PPARγ angiopoietin-related protein, fasting-induced adipose factor, or hepatic fibrinogen/ angiopoietin-related protein (HFARP), is an adipokine predominantly expressed in adipose tissue and liver. The experimental results show that ANGPTL4 is a blood-borne hormone directly involved in regulating glucose homeostasis, lipid metabolism, and insulin sensitivity. Serum levels of ANGPTL4 were decreased in patients with type 2 diabetes. In animal experiments, ANGPTL4 treatments might reduce hyperglycemia, and improve glucose tolerance by decreasing hepatic glucose production and enhancing insulin-mediated inhibition of gluconeogenesis. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying its metabolic actions remain elusive.

  • PURIFICATION

    Rabbit crude IgG was purified by protein-G chromatography.

  • IMMUNOGEN

    Recombinant full-length human ANGPTL4 expressed in E.coli.

  • SPECIFICITY

    The antibody detects human ANGPTL4.

  • FORMULATION

    Liquid in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS).

  • STORAGE

    Store at –20°C for less than one week. For long-term storage, aliquot and freeze at -70°C. Avoid repeated freeze/defrost cycles.

  • APPLICATION/ USAGE

    Western blot - This antibody can be used at 0.1-0.2 μg/mL with the appropriate secondary reagents to detect human ANGPTL4.

    ELISA - This antibody can be used at 0.5-1.0 μg/mL with the appropriate secondary reagents to detect human ANGPTL4.
