psi-iconBackground and References
BACKGROUND:Macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) is a small secreted protein that can act as a pleiotropic pro-inflammatory cytokine, as well as an enzyme. MIF pro-inflammatory activity can be initiated by signaling through CD74 and CD44, resulting in the secretion of TNF-a, IL-1, IL-6, IL-8, and various MMPs. The enzymatic activity of MIF is characterized by its ability to act as a tautomerase, capable of catalyzing the keto-to-enol isomerization of keto-phenylpyruvate and L-dopachrome. It appears as though MIF catalytic activity is dependent upon a trimeric configuration and a free N-terminal proline residue. Insect cell-derived Recombinant Human MIF is a 15 kDa protein containing 124 amino acid residues, including an N-terminal His-tag.
