Alias: Leukemia Inhibitory Factor

LIF belongs to the IL-6 receptor family. It binds to a heterodimeric membrane receptor made up of a LIF-specific subunit, gp190 or LIFR, and the subunit gp130, which is shared with the other members of the IL-6 family. LIF expression has been observed in various tissues including thymus, lung, and neuronal tissue. LIF can be up-regulated by pro-inflammatory cytokines such as TNFα and IL-17, and elevated levels of LIF have been found in cases of rheumatoid arthritis, neural injury, systemic inflammation, and tuberculosis. LIF has been shown to inhibit the differentiation of TH17 cells in EAE mice and that of human TH17 cells derived from MS subjects. This is believed to occur through LIF exerting an opposing effect on the IL-6-induced STAT3 phosphorylation that is required for TH17 cell differentiation. LIF is most known in its ability to inhibit the differentiation of embryonic stem cells in mice and contribute to stem cell self-renewal. Inhibition of stem cell differentiation by LIF appears to be mouse-specific.
