Please could you tell us if you have a Mouse Leptin ELISA Kit that can
be used on only 5 ul of serum?

Thanks for your inquiry.
5ul sample is really too little and at least 1:20 dilution is needed if you dilute the sample.
However, for this kit CSB-E04650m, usually there is no need to dilute serum and plasma sample.
So we hope you could try to collect more samples and make the experiment according our manual.

Target Data

Function Key player in the regulation of energy balance and body weight control. Once released into the circulation, has central and peripheral effects by binding LEPR, found in many tissues, which results in the activation of several major signaling pathways

  12. Data suggest that lnc-leptin is among the most prominent lncRNAs expressed in adipocytes; lnc-leptin expression from an enhancer region upstream of leptin is sensitive to insulin and correlates to leptin expression across diverse pathophysiological conditions; induction of lnc-leptin is essential for adipogenesis; its presence is required for maintenance of leptin expression in adipocytes.

Early-life exposure of the PVH to maternal obesity through postnatal elevation of leptin may have long-term consequences for cardiovascular health. PMID: 27791019
  20. t the cellular level, leptin promoted effector T-cell responses and facilitated the presentation of self-antigens to T cells, whereas it inhibited the activity of regulatory CD4 T cells. The understanding of the role of leptin in modulating autoimmune responses in SLE can open possibilities of leptin-targeted therapeutic intervention in the disease. PMID: 27588900

Upregulation of leptin levels in both the vessel wall and the circulation after vessel injury promoted the migration of Sca-1(+) progenitor cells via leptin receptor-dependent signal transducer and activator of transcription 3- Rac1/Cdc42-ERK (extracellular signal-regulated kinase)-FAK pathways, which enhanced neointimal formation. PMID: 28935755
  28. Depletion of CLPABP disturbed the normal subcellular localization of HuR to stress granules, and overexpression of CLPABP induced instability of leptin mRNA by inhibiting HuR function. PMID: 27616329

These findings suggest that by impairing the testicular LEP-JAK-STAT pathway, early-stage obesity inhibits the biosynthesis of testosterone and sexual development and reduces male reproductive potential. Long-term moderate and high-volume exercise can effectively reduce body fat and improve obesity-induced abnormalities in testicular leptin signal transduction, whereas only moderate-volume exercise can reverse the negativ PMID: 28100475
