mouse LIF protein vs ESGRO?

By |2022-02-21T13:55:46+00:00July 12th, 2021|#qkinetechtip, protein science, quality, resources, stem cells|Comments Off on mouse LIF protein vs ESGRO?

There is no fundamental difference between ESGRO and recombinant mouse leukaemia inhibitor factor (mLIF) protein. Both can be used for the successful maintenance of mouse embryonic stem cell (ESC) pluripotency. 10E7 units of ESGRO is equivalent to 100 µg of pure protein. Thank you to Susanne van den Brink (postdoc in Anna Bigas lab, IMIM, Barcelona) and David Turner (University of Liverpool) for sharing their resuspension protocol to prepare ESLIF media.

Why quality is not just about purity – by Qkine founder Dr Marko Hyvönen

By |2022-02-07T11:37:45+00:00August 7th, 2018|protein science, quality|Comments Off on Why quality is not just about purity – by Qkine founder Dr Marko Hyvönen

As a structural biologist, one will very quickly realise that protein not only needs to be pure, but it needs to be also homogeneous and the real proof of the protein’s quality is in its specific bioactivity. So,we clearly need different criteria for defining quality and that is what we do at Qkine.
