Background Information

LIN28 is one of the four key human factors (OCT4, SOX2, NANOG and LIN28) used to reprogram human fibroblasts to an embryonic stem (ES) cell-like state known as the induced pluripotent stem (Ips) cell. Lin28 is a marker of undifferentiated human embryonic stem cells and a cytoplasmic Mrna-binding protein that binds to and enhances the translation of the IGF2 Mrna. LIN28 has also been shown to bind to the let-7 pre-miRNA and block production of the mature let-7 microRNA in mouse embryonic stem cells. Affinity purified rabbit anti-LIN28 can be used to demonstrate pluripotency of ES and Ips cells, and to detect LIN28 transgene expression in the process of reprogramming. This antibody is a rabbit polyclonal antibody raised against a peptide mapping within human LIN28.This antibody recognize Lin28A specifically.
