Recombinant mouse leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) is a bioactive protein intended for use in cell culture applications. LIF is known for its ability to maintain the pluripotency of mouse embryonic stem cells. LIF is also involved in a wide variety of biological processes, including hematopoietic cell proliferation, neuronal survival and formation, and bone formation.

Features of Gibco® recombinant proteins include:

High purity—no interference from other proteins or contaminants
High biological activity—more results with less protein
Proven compatibility—Gibco® proteins bioassayed with Gibco® media

High Purity Recombinant Bioactive Protein
Recombinant mouse LIF is one of our more than 250 available Gibco® recombinant proteins. 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 mouse LIF specific activity is determined by measuring its ability to induce IL-6 production in M1 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.
