Leukemia Inhibitory Factor also called LIF is a lymphoid factor that promotes long-term maintenance of embryonic stem cells by suppressing spontaneous differentiation. Leukemia Inhibitory Factor has several functions such as cholinergic neuron differentiation, control of stem cell pluripotency, bone & fat metabolism, mitogenesis of factor dependent cell lines & promotion of megakaryocyte production in vivo. Human and mouse LIF exhibit a 78% identity in its amino acid sequence.
LIF Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain (a.a 23-202) containing 189 amino acids including a 9 a.a N-terminal His tag. The total molecular mass is 20.9kDa (calculated).
LIF filtered (0.4 µm) and lyophilized from 0.5mg/ml solution in 20 mM Tris buffer, 20 mM NaCl and 5% w/v trehalose, pH 7.5.
It is recommended to add deionized water to prepare a working stock solution of approximately 0.5mg/ml and let the lyophilized pellet dissolve completely.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
