Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab101228 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 122 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 122 kDa).


  • FunctionSignal-transducing molecule. May have a common pathway with IL6ST. The soluble form inhibits the biological activity of LIF by blocking its binding to receptors on target cells.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in LIFR are the cause of Stueve-Wiedemann syndrome (SWS) [MIM:601559]; also knowns as Schwartz-Jampel syndrome type 2 (SJS2). SWS is a severe autosomal recessive condition and belongs to the group of the bent-bone dysplasias. SWS is characterized by bowing of the lower limbs, with internal cortical thickening, wide metaphyses with abnormal trabecular pattern, and camptodactyly. Additional features include feeding and swallowing difficulties, as well as respiratory distress and hyperthermic episodes, which cause death in the first months of life. The rare survivors develop progressive scoliosis, spontaneous fractures, bowing of the lower limbs, with prominent joints and dysautonomia symptoms, including temperature instability, absent corneal and patellar reflexes, and smooth tongue.
    Note=A chromosomal aberration involving LIFR is found in salivary gland pleiomorphic adenomas, the most common benign epithelial tumors of the salivary gland. Translocation t(5;8)(p13;q12) with PLAG1.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the type I cytokine receptor family. Type 2 subfamily.
    Contains 6 fibronectin type-III domains.
  • DomainThe WSXWS motif appears to be necessary for proper protein folding and thereby efficient intracellular transport and cell-surface receptor binding.
    The box 1 motif is required for JAK interaction and/or activation.

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size : 122 kDa
    Observed band size : 122 kDa
    Additional bands at : 37 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time : 90 seconds
  • IHC image of LIFR staining in mouse placenta formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol B. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab101228, 1µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature. A goat anti-rabbit biotinylated secondary antibody was used to detect the primary, and visualized using an HRP conjugated ABC system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
