Expression of the two common pluripotency markers Nanog and Oct-4 in the presence of mouse LIF was assessed with RT-PCR. Gapdh is the loading control.
Non-reducing (-) and reducing (+) conditions in a 4 - 20% Tris-Glycine gel stained with Coomassie Blue. 1 μg of protein was loaded in each lane. Human MCP-1 has a predicted Mw of 8.7 kDa.

Leukemia 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 Assay

Mouse 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.
