Recombinant Human Leukemia Inhibitory Factor (LIF)
(Cat. No.: C017)


Background:
       
Leukemia Inhibitory Factor (LIF) is a lymphoid factor which 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 control. Human LIF is equally active on both human and mouse cells. Murine LIF is approximately 1000 fold less active on human cells, than hLIF.

Description:
       
Recombinant Human LIF produced in E. coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 180 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 19717 Dalton.

Quality Control:
        Biological activity: The ED50 was determined by the M1 cell differentiation assay is < 0.01 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of 1.0 x 108 IU/mg.
        Purity: Greater than 95% as determined by
                    (a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.
                    (b) Anion-exchange FPLC.
                    (c) Analysis by reducing and non-reducing SDS-PAGE Silver Stained gel..
        Amino-Acid Sequence: The sequence of the first five N-terminal amino acids was determined and was found to be Ser-Pro-Leu-Pro-Ile.
        Endotoxin: Less than 0.1ng/µg (1IEU/µg) of LIF.

Formulation: LIF was lyophilized after extensive dialysis against PBS.

Storage: Lyophilized rHuLIF although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18oC. Upon reconstitution rHuLIF should be stored at 4oC between 2-7 days and for future use below -18oC. For long-term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
        Please avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
 
Reconstitution:
We recommend a quick spin followed by reconstitution in water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0mg/ml. It is recommended that further dilutions be made into buffer or medium to which protein (e.g., 1% BSA) or Tween 20 has been added. This solution can then be stored at 4oC for 1 week or -20oC for future use.
