Rabbit and Canine Leukemia Inhibitory Factor (LIF) Recombinant Proteins

Kingfisher Biotech's Rabbit and Canine Leukemia Inhibitory Factor (LIF) recombinant proteins can be used in cell culture, as an LIF ELISA Standard, and as a Western Blot Control. Leukemia inhibitory factor, or LIF, is a member of the IL-6 family. LIF affects cell growth by inhibiting differentiation. When LIF levels drop, the cells differentiate. Leukemia inhibitory factor derives its name from its ability to induce the terminal differentiation of myeloid leukemic cells, thus preventing their continued growth. Other properties attributed to LIF include: the growth promotion and cell differentiation of different types of target cells, influence on bone metabolism, cachexia, neural development, embryogenesis and inflammation. p53 regulated LIF has been shown to facilitate implantation in the mouse model and possibly in humans. Removal of LIF pushes stem cells toward differentiation, but they retain their proliferative potential or pluripotency. LIF is typically added to stem cell culture medium to reduce spontaneous differentiation.

Kingfisher Biotech's LIF recombinant proteins are intended for use in animal model and animal health research. Our portfolio includes bovine, canine, and rabbit Leukemia Inhibitory Factor (LIF) recombinant proteins. We will be adding Swine Leukemia Inhibitory Factor (LIF) recombinant protein soon.
