||Recombinant human LIF protein, fused to His GST-tag at N-terminus, was expressed in E.coli and purified by using conventional chromatography techniques. MW = 47.2 kDa (415aa) confirmed by MALDI-TOF.
||Leukemia inhibitory factor, also known as LIF, is a pleiotropic cytokine that is expressed by a wide variety of cells including activated T lymphocytes, monocytes, mast cells and neuronal cells. It is involved in the induction of hematopoietic differentiation in normal and myeloid leukemia cells, induction of neuronal cell differentiation, regulator of mesenchymal to epithelial conversion during kidney development, and may also have a role in immune tolerance at the maternal-fetal interface.
