Radioimmunoassay of leptin in human plasma.

Abstract

Recent studies suggest that leptin, the ob gene product absent in ob/ob mice, is a negative regulator of adiposity. We developed an RIA to measure human leptin in plasma or serum. The minimum detectable concentration by the assay is 0.5 microg/L leptin and the limit of linearity is 100 microg/L. Recovery of leptin added to serum was 99-104% over by the… (More)
