Recombinant human leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) is a bioactive protein intended for use in cell culture applications. LIF is a cytokine that induces macrophage differentiation. LIF, in conjunction with BMP2, acts on primary fetal neural progenitor cells to induce astrocytes.
• High purity—minimizes interference from other proteins or contaminants
• High biological activity—more results with less protein
• Proven compatibility—Gibco® proteins bioassayed with Gibco® mediaHigh Purity Recombinant Bioactive Protein
Recombinant human LIF is one of more than 250 Gibco® recombinant proteins available from Life Technologies. To help ensure Gibco® growth factors are of the highest quality, each protein is analyzed for purity along with structural homogeneity to ensure a biologically active protein.High Biological Activity
In-house activity testing of Gibco® recombinant proteins includes cell proliferation, cytotoxicity, chemotaxis, calcium flux, secondary cytokine up-regulation, induction of surface antigen expression, antiviral, and protease assays. Recombinant human LIF-specific activity is determined by measuring the LIF dose-dependent proliferation of Human TF-1 cells.Proven Compatibility
Gibco® proteins are bioassayed with Gibco® media. Since 1962, Gibco® has been the consistent provider of high quality media, reagents, and sera for reliable cell culture.See our selection of recombinant Gibco® growth factors
