Recombinant Mouse Agouti Related Protein

Cat. No.: Agrp-546M
Product Overview: Recombinant Mouse Agrpprotein was expressed in E. coli. Ser82-Thr131.
Description: Agrp, the proteinproduct of the Agouti Related Transcript (ART), is a neuroprotein thatregulates energy metabolism and the development of obesity by antagonizing αmelanocytestimulating hormone (α-MSH) action on MC-3 and MC-4 receptors. Agrp is predominantlyexpressed in the hypothalamus and adrenal medulla. Mature mouse Agrp is a 111amino acid (aa) polypeptide; its C-terminal portion contains ten conservedcysteines that form five disulfide bonds. Within the C-terminal region, mouseAgrp shares 80% and 90% aa sequence identity with human and rat Agrp,respectively. It also shares 44% aa sequence identity with Agrp. As with Agrp,the C-terminal cysteine rich region is sufficient for biological activity.
Source: E. coli-derived
Form: Lyophilized from a0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS.
N-terminalSequence: Ser82
Molecular Weight: 5.7 kDa
Activity: Measured by itsability to antagonize α-MSHinduced c-AMP accumulation on human MelanocortinReceptor 4 transfected BaF3 mouse proB cells. The ED50 for thiseffect is typically 1-4 μg/mL in the presence of 10 ng/mL of α-MSH.
Endotoxin Level: < 1.0EU per 1 μg of the protein by the LAL method.
Purity: > 95%,by SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions and visualized by silver stain.
Reconstitution: 100μg/mL in sterile PBS.
