Leukemia Inhibitory Factor Is Essential for the Self-Renewal of Embryonic Stem Cells from Nile Tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) Through Stat3 Signaling.

Abstract

To date, little is known about the mechanisms underlying the self-renewal of embryonic stem (ES) cells from fish species. In this study, we report that the leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF; named as OnLif) from a teleost fish, Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus), is essential for the proliferation, survival, and pluripotency maintenance of Nile tilapia ES… (More)
