Recombinant Human Leukemia Inhibitory Factor/LIF

Cat.No.: C017

Recombinant Human LIF
Description
Recombinant Human Leukemia Inhibitory Factor is produced by our E.coli expression system and the target gene encoding Ser23-Phe202 is expressed.
Accession #:P15018
Known as:Leukemia Inhibitory Factor; LIF; Differentiation-Stimulating Factor; D Factor; Melanoma-Derived LPL Inhibitor; MLPLI; Emfilermin; LIF; HILDA
Formulation
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution of PBS, pH 7.4.
Quality Control
Purity:Greater than 95% as determined by reducing SDS-PAGE.

Reconstitution
Always centrifuge tubes before opening. Do not mix by vortex or pipetting.
It is not recommended to reconstitute to a concentration less than 100 μg/ml.
Dissolve the lyophilized protein in ddH2O.
Please aliquot the reconstituted solution to
Storage
Lyophilized protein should be stored at < -20°C, though stable at room temperature for 3 weeks.
Reconstituted protein solution can be stored at 4-7°C for 2-7 days.
Aliquots of reconstituted samples are stable at < -20°C for 3 months.
Background
Leukemia Inhibitory Factor (LIF) is a lymphoid factor that promotes long-term maintenance of embryonic stem cells by suppressing spontaneous differentiation. LIF has a number of other activities including cholinergic neuron differentiation, control of stem cell pluripotency, bone and fat metabolism, mitogenesis of certain factor dependent cell lines and promotion of megakaryocyte production in vivo. Human and murine mature LIF exhibit a 78% sequence identity at the amino acid level. Human LIF is equally active on human and mouse cells. Murine LIF is approximately 1000 fold less active on human cells than human LIF.
