Leukemia inhibitory factor receptor, LIF receptor, LIF-R, D-factor/LIF receptor, CD118, CD antigen, leukemia inhibitory factor receptor isoform 1 precursor, Lifr.
Leukemia Inhibitory Factor Receptor Alpha or LIFR is a protein, part of the Interleukin-6 receptor group of proteins. As such, LIFR acts as a mediator for various proteins (IL-6, IL-11, IL-27, Oncostatin M etc). LIFR has many functions as a cytokine, he has an affect on the cell proliferation, differentiation and survival in the different stages of life. In different types of breast cancer LIFR is down regulated, and as such, can be used as a prognostic tool.
LIFR Mouse Recombinant produced in Baculovirus is a single glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 794 amino acids (44-828 aa) and having a molecular mass of 89.6kDa.
LIFR is fused to a 9 amino acid His tag at C-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sf9, Baculovirus cells.
LIFR protein (0.25mg/ml) contains 10% glycerol and Phosphate-Buffered Saline (pH 7.4).
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 90.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Measured by its ability to inhibit proliferation using TF-1 human erythroleukemic cells. The ED50 range ≤ 1ug/ml with Mouse LIF.
