Polyclonal Antibody against Human FGF-21

Application: ELISA

Size: 0.1 mg

Host: Rabbit


    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 conditions [1,2]. In murine models, FGF-21 is predominantly expressed in liver, but also expressed in adipose tissue and pancreatic β-cells [3,4]. 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 rodents [5]. When administered daily for 6 weeks to diabetic rhesus monkeys, FGF-21 caused a dramatic decline in fasting plasma glucose, fructosamine, triglycerides, insulin and glucagon [6]. Furthermore, elevated plasma FGF-21 concentrations in humans appear to be related to the presence of hepatic and peripheral insulin resistance [7].


    Recombinant full-length human FGF-21 expressed in E.coli.


    The antibody detects circular human FGF-21.


    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.


    ELISA - The antibody can be used at 2 μg /mL with the appropriate secondary reagents to detect human FGF21.


    Antigen affinity-purified
