LEP

(Light Emitting Polymer) An organic polymer that glows (emits photons) when excited by electricity. LEP screens are used to make organic LED (OLED) displays and are expected to compete with LCD screens in the future. See OLED.

Neuroprotective effects of leptin against ischemic injury induced by oxygen-glucose deprivation and transient cerebral ischemia.
Serum leptin and kisspeptin concentrations were measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay methods with commercially available kits (USCNK Life Science, Cloud-Clone Corp.
8) Abnormal leptin levels may be associated to cART-induced lipodystrophy, decreased insulin sensitivity and metabolic syndrome.
Measurement of serum leptin levels is cost intensive, requires sophisticated equipment, and, as such, is not accessible for routine health care, especially in low-resource setting.
Conclusions: Leptin levels are not correlated with CAC scores in subjects with low CVD risk.
An alternative measure of exposure to traffic-related pollution, residential distance to the nearest major roadway, was unrelated to leptin levels, said the study published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine.
These steps were followed by washing the sections in PBS and subsequently incubating 20 min at room temperature with 1 % PBS/ BSA solution to block unspecific binding and incubated overnight at 4[degrees]C with leptin antibody (1:50; L3410; Sigma-Aldrich) and OBR (1:200; ab5593; Abcam), both in 1 % PBS/ BSA.

These included: APOE (Assaypro, US), Leptin (Assaypro, US), CFH (Cusabio, China) and HTRA1 (EIAab, China).
Thrombocyte aggregation was calculated from the whole blood subsequently the effects of different concentrations of human recombinant leptin on thrombocyte aggregations were investigated.
