FGF-21 (human), rabbit polyclonal antibody

Application: ELISA

Size: 0.1 mg


    Fibroblast growth factor 21(FGF-21) is a novel protein that has been implicated in the regulation of lipid and glucose metabolism under fasting and ketotic conditions1,2. In murine models, FGF-21 is predominantly expressed in liver, but it also expressed in adipose tissue and pancreatic β-cells3,4. FGF-21 stimulates glucose uptake in adipocytes. It also protects animals from diet-induced obesity when overexpressed in transgenic mice and lowers blood glucose and triglyceride levels when administered to diabetic rodents5. When administered daily for 6 weeks to diabetic rhesus monkeys, FGF-21 caused a dramatic decline in fasting plasma glucose, fructosamine, triglycerides, insulin, and glucagon6. Furthermore, elevated plasma FGF-21 concentrations in humans appear to be related to the presence of hepatic and peripheral insulin resistance7.
