Human Leukemia Inhibitory Factor (LIF) is member of the IL-6 family and is made by a variety of tissues. Human LIF signals through gp130 to activate STAT3 in human ESCs. In mouse ESCs, LIF promotes self-renewal and pluripotentcy, but in human cells there is no indication that LIF has the same function. Instead, FGF-basic (FGF-2) and Activin A are used to promote self-renewal and pluripotent potential. Recombinant human LIF is a non-glycosylated protein. Animal Free: This product is produced with no animal-derived raw products, animal free equipment and animal free protocols.

Product Type:
Peptides & proteins
Alternative Names:
Leukocyte Inhibitory Factor
Storage Temp:
Molecular Weight:
19.8 kDa
PURITY (MIN.): ≥95
Additional Information:
Produced using animal free raw components and processes, in a non-mammalian system. Ideal for researchers concerned about the risks and effects of contaminating viruses, prions and trace growth factors from FBS and animal-derived ingredients used in standard recombinant protein production techniques. Endotoxin levels are less than 1.0 EU per ug protein via LAL. Bioactivity is comparable to recombinant protein produced in traditional techniques.
