Mouse LIF Quantikine ELISA Kit Summary

The Quantikine Mouse LIF Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure mouse LIF levels in cell culture supernates, serum, and EDTA plasma. It contains E. coli-expressed recombinant mouse LIF and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. Results obtained for naturally occurring mouse LIF showed linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtaine...d using the Quantikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values of natural mouse LIF.

Based on its helical structure, LIF (Leukemia Inhibitory Factor) is considered a member of the Interleukin-6 family of cytokines. Functionally, it has been implicated in a many physiological processes including development, hematopoiesis, bone metabolism, and inflammation. Some cell types known to express LIF include activated T cells, monocytes, astrocytes, osteoblasts, keratinocytes, regenerating skeletal muscle, mast cells, and fibroblasts. The activities of LIF are mediated through a high-affinity heterodimeric receptor complex consisting of two membrane glycoproteins: an alpha subunit (LIF R alpha, also known as LIF R beta and CD118) that binds LIF with low affinity and the 130 kDa (gp130) subunit that does not bind LIF by itself, but is required for high-affinity binding of LIF by the complex.
