Figure: Superdex 200 analysis of Adiponectin (human) (recombinant) (Prod. No. ALX-522-063) produced in mammalian cells (HEK 293). The different forms of adiponectin are indicated by arrows: High molecular weight (HMW; representing 12-18-mer species) and hexamer. The red arrow indicates where should elute the trimeric state of adiponectin. For further information on adiponectin forms, see Tsao et al., 2002 and Pajvani et al., 2003, in General Literature References."
