  • Product overview

    Abcam’s LIF Human ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Human LIF in serum, plasma, and cell culture supernatants.

    This assay employs an antibody specific for Human LIF coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and LIF present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Human LIF antibody is added. After washing away unbound biotinylated antibody, HRP-conjugated streptavidin is pipetted to the wells. The wells are again washed, a TMB substrate solution is added to the wells and color develops in proportion to the amount of LIF bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

  • Notes

    Optimization may be required with urine samples.

    LIF (Leukocyte inhibitory factor) is produced by various fibroblast cell lines, antigen-stimulated alloreactive T-lymphocytes, mitogen-activated spleen cells, and Krebs and Ehrlich ascites cells. It is also produced by monocytes after cell activation. This factor inhibits the random and directed migration of polymorphonuclear (PMN) leukocytes. LIF also induces specific granule secretion by PMNs and potentiates many responses mediated by the chemotactic compound fMLP (formyl-methionyl-leucylphenylalanine).

  • Function
    LIF has the capacity to induce terminal differentiation in leukemic cells. Its activities include the induction of hematopoietic differentiation in normal and myeloid leukemia cells, the induction of neuronal cell differentiation, and the stimulation of acute-phase protein synthesis in hepatocytes.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the LIF/OSM family.

This is the only kit we have for LIF. We do not know the immunogens of the two antibodies in this kit (nor have they been tested on mouse samples), therefore unable to know how much homology there is. Human and mouse LIF do share 78% homology so th...
