Total cell lysates (15 µg total protein) from 293T, A431, U937 (reduced expression control), HeLa (reduced expression control), and UMR106 cells were resolved by 4-12% Bis-Tris gel electrophoresis, transferred to a nitrocellulose membrane, and probed with 1:500 diluted Purified anti-MIF Antibody, clone Poly5240, overnight at 4°C. Proteins were visualized by chemiluminescence detection using donkey anti-goat IgG Antibody at a 1:3000 dilution. Direct-Blot™ HRP anti-GAPDH Antibody (Cat. No. 607904) was used as a loading control at a 1:50000 dilution (lower). Lane M: Molecular Weight marker. Cell lysates were loaded in order of decreasing MIF mRNA expression levels (source: Human Protein Atlas).

Description

MIF (human macrophage migration inhibitory factor) is a non-glycosylated polypeptide expressed by multiple cell types, which include activated T cells, macrophages, eosinophils, epithelial cells, and endothelial cells. It is secreted by response to diverse inflammatory stimuli, and has been associated with a clear pro-inflammatory and proatherogenic role in multiple studies involving patients and animals. MIF also positively correlates with obesity as well as insulin resistance and contributes to adipose tissue inflammation by modulating ATM functions. Furthermore, MIF has been described as a protein that plays an essential role in both innate and acquired immunity.
