LIF (leukemia inhibitory factor, myeloid leukemia inhibitory factor) a pleiotropic lymphoid factor was initially described as a factor that inhibits the proliferation of myeloid leukemia cells and induces their differentiation into macrophages. Other activities of LIF include inhibition of adipogenesis, cholinergic neuron differentiation and bone metabolism. Human and mouse LIF share 78% homology and activities of LIF are not species-specific. Human LIF is active on mouse cells, but murine LIF is not active on human cells. Benefits of NovActive® Proteins
Fully Active
-Fully folded naturally by eukaryotic source
-Comparable for eukaryotic glycosylation
BioRisk Free
-infection reagent-free
-low in proteolyic activity
-low in pyrogenic and pro-inflammatory activity
Just reconstitute and add to your cell culture.
Have FDA G.R.A.S. (generally recognized as safe) approval.
Advantages of barley endosperm Folding -Proficient protein machinery, with eukaryotic folding, allows for native formation of the protein and long term protection and storage. Environment -A biochemically inert environment, void of endotoxins, low protease activity and secondary metabolite content, and a simple protein profile, aid in downstream processing in barley. FDA G.R.A.S status -Barley is recognized by the FDA as having G.R.A.S (generally recognized as safe) status.
