Anti-mouse FGF-21 Antibody, Rabbit pAb
Polyclonal Antibody against Mouse FGF-21
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 conditions. In murine models, FGF-21 is predominantly expressed in liver, but is also expressed in adipose tissue and pancreatic β-cells. 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. 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. Furthermore, elevated plasma FGF-21 concentrations in humans appear to be related to the presence of hepatic and peripheral insulin resistance.
Recombinant full-length mouse FGF-21 expressed in E.coli.
The antibody detects circular mouse FGF-21 in western blot and ELISA.
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 - This antibody can be used at 2 μg/mL with the appropriate secondary reagents to detect mouse FGF-21.
Western blot - This antibody can be used at 0.2-0.5 μg/mL with the appropriate secondary reagents to detect mouse FGF-21.
