Human macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) is a 12.5 kD, 115 amino acid, non-glycosylated polypeptide expressed by multiple cell types, including activated T cells, macrophages, eosinophils, epithelial cells, and endothelial cells. MIF plays many roles in biological processes such as catalytic activity, immunity, endocrine regulation, signal modulation, and inflammation.

MIF is expressed in malignant cells including lung, liver, breast, colon, and prostate tumors. Studies suggest that MIF might serve as a molecular link between chronic inflammation and cancer.

Recombinant MIF consists of a mixture of monomers, dimers, and trimers. The physiologically active forms are believed to be predominantly dimeric and trimeric forms.

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this protein is quality control tested by ELISA assay.  A concentration of 4 µg/ml of the capture antibody was utilized to generate the example standard curve. It is recommended that each lot of reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Application Notes

ELISA: To measure human MIF, the purified 10C3 antibody (Cat. No. 525501) is useful as the capture antibody in a sandwich ELISA assay, when used in conjunction with the biotinylated 10C3 antibody (Cat. No. 525503) as the detection antibody.

Additional reported applications (for the relevant formats) include: functional assay1 and neutralization1. The LEAF™ purified antibody (Endotoxin <0.1 EU/µg, Azide-Free, 0.2 µm filtered) is recommended for functional assays (contact our custom solutions team).

Note: For testing human MIF in serum, plasma or cell culture supernatant, BioLegend's LEGEND MAX™ ELISA Kits (Cat. No. 438407 & 438408) are specially developed and recommended.
