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. The application of mouse LIF to long-term culture systems promotes mouse embryonic stem cell (ESC) self-renewal and pluripotency, similar to the functional activity of FGF-2 in human ESC cell culture systems.
Activity AssayMouse LIF is fully biologically active when compared to standard. The specific activity of the sample is approximately 1 x 108 units/mg, in which 106 units are identical of 10 μg of pure protein sufficient to treat 1.0 L of stem cells including human embryonic stem cells, neural stem cells, hematopoietic stem cells, mesenchymal stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells.
