The cytokine Macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) has been identified to be secreted by the pituitary gland and the monocyte/macrophage and to play an important role in endotoxic shock. MIF has the unique property of being released from macrophages and T cells in response to physiological concentrations of glucocorticoids. The secretion of MIF is tightly regulated and decreases at high, anti-inflammatory steroid concentration.
Catalog #M3895-07V
MIF human Recombinant was cloned into an E .coli expression vector and was purified to apparent homogeneity by using conventional column chromatography techniques. Macrophage Inducing Factor Human Recombinant is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 115 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 12.5kD.
Biological Activity Human PBMCs were cultured with 0-1000ng/ml Human MIF. Production of IL-8 was measured via ELISA after 24 hours. The ED50 which was found to be 88-132ng/ml.
