  • Autoimmune disease research.

Detailed product information

Background information

Human macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF), also known as glycosylation-inhibiting factor (GIF), is a pro-inflammatory cytokine that is an important regulator of innate immunity. Signaling works through CD74 and CD44, resulting in the release of TNF-α, IL-1, IL-6, and IL-8. MIF plays a role in the regulation of macrophage function in host defense through the suppression of anti-inflammatory effects of glucocorticoids. Increased MIF production seems to be involved in rheumatoid arthritis, colorectal cancer, and Alzheimer disease. Human MIF is 90% identical to mouse MIF.

Biological activity

  • Inhibition of monocyte migration.

Quality description

Research-grade
cytokines are suitable for a wide variety of cell culture applications. They are sterile-filtered prior to lyophilization. Generally, endotoxin levels are <0.1 ng/μg (<1 EU/μg), and purities are >95%. The biological activity is tested in appropriate bioassays.
