Phenylpyruvate tautomerase, Glycosylation-inhibiting factor, GIF, MMIF, MIF.
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.
MIF human Recombinant, fused to 40 a.a. His-tag at N-terminus, 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 ( 1-115 a.a. ) is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain having a total amino acids of 155 and molecular mass of 17kDa.
Sterile filtered colorless solution.
1mg/ml solution containing PBS pH-7.4.
Liquid MIF although stable 4°C for 1 week, should be stored below -18°C.
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by:
(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.
(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
