DescriptionLeukemia Inhibitory Factor (LIF) is a member of the interleukin-6 (IL-6) family that is made by a variety of adult and embryonic tissues. LIF signals through the glycoprotein 130 (gp130)/LIF receptor (LIFR) heterodimer to activate STAT3 and MAPK signaling. LIF functions during hematopoietic differentiation, neuronal cell differentiation, kidney development, and inflammatory processes. Human LIF may also be an important factor during human embryonic stem cell (hESC) self-renewal, pluripotency, and embryonic implantation.
Activity AssaySpecific activity of the sample is approximate 108 units/mg. 106 units, identical 10 µg of pure protein, are sufficient to treat 1.0 L of stem cells including human embryonic stem cells, hematopoietic stem cells, mesenchymal stem cells, neural stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells.
