EIA-ZAG-1

RayBio® Human/Mouse/Rat ZAG EIA Kit optimized for serum and cell culture medium. Competition-based ELISA on a 96-well strip plate.

Introduction

ZAG is a 41 kDa soluble glycoprotein, which is a homologue of the class 1 major histocompatibility complex (MHC) heavy chain. ZAG was found to stimulate lipolysis through stimulation of adenylyl cyclase in a GTP-dependent process. ZAG produced weight loss when administered to obese mice without a reduction in food and water intake. Loss of body weight was entirely due to loss of adipose tissue with no effect on lean body mass. There was a three-fold increase in oxygen consumption by interscapular brown adipose tissue (BAT), suggesting an increase in thermogenesis. Recent studies have reported that ZAG is not only capable of stimulating lipolysis through activation of HSL, but also increases the utilization of the released NEFA through an increased level of UCPs in BAT and skeletal muscle.
