LIF (Leukemia Inhibitory Factor)

Product Description:

  • Animal-derived product free
  • Available in Bulk
  • High Activity

LIFHuXp is a pleiotropic factor produced by numerous cell types which includes myelomonocytic lineages, T cells, fibroblasts, melanoma, liver, and heart. LIF promotes long-term maintenance of embryonic stem cells by suppressing spontaneous differentiation. Other activities include the stimulation of acute phase protein synthesis by hepatocytes, stimulation of differentiation of cholinergic nerves, and suppression of adipogenesis by inhibiting the lipoprotein lipase in adipocytes. Mature human LIF (180 aa) shares 78%, 82%, 91%, 88 and 87% aa sequence identity with mouse, rat, canine, bovine, and porcine LIF, respectively. To reduce spontaneous differentiation, LIF is typically added to stem cell culture medium.

Technical Specifications:

  • Species: Human
  • Expression: HEK293 Cell Expressed
  • Activity: Typically ≤ 0.2 ng/mL EC50
  • Purity: >95%
  • Endotoxin: <1 EU/μg
  • Molecular Mass: 33-48 kDa, glycosylated
  • Formulation: 1x PBS

Purity Confirmation:

The protein was resolved by SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and the gel was stained with Coomassie blue.

Activity Assay:

The activity was determined by the dose- dependent stimulation of the proliferation of human TF-1 cells (human erythroleukemic indicator cell line).

Reconstitution Buffer:

Briefly centrifuge the vial before opening. It is recommended to reconstitute the protein in sterile 1x PBS containing 0.1% endotoxin-free recombinant human serum albumin (HSA).
