- Cross-species comparison of the sequence of the leukaemia inhibitory factor gene and its proteinT A Willson
Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, Royal Melbourne Hospital, Parkville, Victoria, Australia
Eur J Biochem 204:21-30. 1992Leukaemia inhibitory factor (LIF) is a pleiotropic growth factor active in diverse cell systems in both the adult and the embryo. The LIF gene from a number of mammalian species is highly conserved...

Mamm Genome 7:275-9. 1996Nineteen so-called type I-loci, including ACO2, ADRA2, CAST, CCK, CHAT, IGKC, IGLV, IL4, IL6, INHA, LIF, MX1, PTH, RBP2, TCRA, TCRB, TGFB2, TGFB3, and UOX have been mapped in the pig with an informative somatic cell hybrid panel...
- Complex conserved organization of the mammalian leukemia inhibitory factor gene: regulated expression of intracellular and extracellular cytokinesB P Haines
Department of Biochemistry, University of Adelaide, Australia
J Immunol 162:4637-46. 1999Leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) is a member of the IL-6 family of pleiotropic cytokines, which are extensively involved in modulating hematopoiesis and immunity...
- Molecular characterization and chromosome assignment of the porcine gene for leukemia inhibitory factor LIFA Spötter
Institute of Animal Breeding and Genetics, School of Veterinary Medicine Hannover, Bunteweg 17p, D 30559 Hannover, Germany
Cytogenet Cell Genet 93:87-90. 2001Leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) is a pleiotropic cytokine involved in early conceptus development in pig. We isolated a PAC clone containing the porcine LIF gene and determined the complete DNA sequence of the gene, which spans about 6...
- Evidence of a new leukemia inhibitory factor-associated genetic marker for litter size in a synthetic pig lineA Spötter
Institute of Animal Breeding and Genetics, University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover, Bünteweg 17 p, 30559 Hannover, Germany
J Anim Sci 83:2264-70. 2005The association of a diallelic polymorphism in the leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) gene with reproductive, growth, and carcass traits was studied in a German synthetic pig line...
- Leukemia inhibitory factor is upregulated in coronary arteries of Ossabaw miniature swine after stent placementPamela G Lloyd
Department of Cellular and Integrative Physiology, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, Indiana 46202, USA
Coron Artery Dis 19:217-26. 2008Leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF), an IL-6 class cytokine, is reported to be antiatherosclerotic. Thus, we hypothesized that LIF expression might be altered during in-stent neointimal hyperplasia...

Institute of Animal Breeding and Genetics, University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover, Hannover, Germany
Reprod Domest Anim 44:100-5. 2009The association of two diallelic polymorphisms in the porcine genes for leukaemia inhibitory factor (LIF) and retinol-binding protein 4 (RBP4) with number of piglets born alive (NBA) in two German pig lines was studied...
