Description:

This polyclonal antibody recognizes Macrophage Migration Inhibitory Factor (MIF), one of the first cytokine activities to be discovered, initially described as a T cell-derived factor that inhibits the random migration of macrophages. Later, MIF was rediscovered as a pituitary hormone that acts as the counter-regulatory hormone for glucocorticoid action within the immune system. MIF is released from macrophages and T cells in response to physiological concentrations of glucocorticoids. Secreted MIF counter-regulates the immunosuppressive effects of steroids on immune cell activation and cytokine production. MIF plays a critical role in the host control of inflammation and immunity.
