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 itsaa sequence. Leukemia Inhibitory Factor (LIF) Murine Recombinant produced in E. coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 181aa and having a molecular mass of 20kD. The Leukemia Inhibitory Factor (LIF) is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Recombinant corresponding to mouse LIF expressed in E. coli.
