Purified Recombinant Human Adiponectin (Accession # Q15848)
This monoclonal antibody has been 0.2 µm filtered and lyophilized from modified Dulbecco's phosphate buffered saline (1X PBS) pH 7.2 - 7.3 containing 5.0% w/v trehalose with no calcium, magnesium or preservatives present.
Storage and Handling
The lyophilized antibody can be stored desiccated at -20°C to -70°C for up to twelve months. The reconstituted antibody can be stored for at least four weeks at 2-8°C. For long-term storage of the reconstituted antibody, aseptically aliquot into working volumes and store at -20°C to -70°C in a manual defrost freezer. Avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. No detectable loss of activity was observed after six months.

ELISA Sandwich: This antibody is useful as the capture antibody in a sandwich ELISA. The suggested coating concentration is 2-8 µg/ml. A suitable detection antibody is PN:A393 at a concentration of approximately 0.5-2.0 µg/ml. When used in conjunction with an optimal second step reagent such as PN:A106 and a chromogenic substrate such as PN:T118, the sensitivity of this sandwich ELISA is 4 ng/well. A suggested standard for this assay is PN:A321.
Each investigator should determine their own optimal working dilution for specific applications. See directions on lot specific datasheets, as information may periodically change.
Mouse Anti-Human Adiponectin (Clone 166126) recognizes an epitope on Human Adiponectin. This monoclonal antibody was purified using multi-step affinity chromatography methods such as Protein A or G depending on the species and isotype.
Adiponectin, also known as Acrp30, is an adipocyte-derived protein with wide ranging paracrine and endocrine effects on metabolism and inflammation. It is induced during adipocyte differentiation, and its secretion is stimulated by insulin. It promotes adipocyte differentiation, fatty acid catabolism and insulin sensitivity. Adiponectin expression is negatively correlated with obesity, type 2 diabetes, and atherogenesis. Adiponectin is an anti-inflammatory agent, but it exerts pro-inflammatory effects in nonmetabolic disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease. Adiponectin interacts with the receptors AdipoR1 and AdipoR2, calreticulin and Cadherin-13/T-Cadherin, as well as with several growth factors. Mature human Adiponectin shares 83% and 85% amino acid (aa) sequence identity with mouse and rat Adiponectin, respectively. The glycosylation of four hydroxylated lysine residues in the collagenous domain is required for the intracellular formation of HMW complexes. The various multimeric forms of Adiponectin exhibit distinct tissue specific and gender specific profiles and activities.
