Porcine MIF quantitates porcine MIF in serum, plasma, supernatant. The assay will exclusively recognize both natural and recombinant porcine MIF.MIF (macrophage migration inhibitory factor) was one of the first cytokine activities to be discovered and was initially described as a T cell-derived factor that inhibits the random migration of macrophages (Weiser 1989). Recently, MIF was rediscovered as a pituitary hormone that act as the counterregulatory hormone for glucocorticoid action within the immune system (Bernhagen 1993, Mitchell 1995). MIF was released from macrophages and T cells in response to physiological concentrations of glucocorticoids. The secreted MIF counter-regulates the immunosuppressive effects of steroids on immune cell activation and cytokine production (Bucala 1998). MIF plays a critical role in the host control of inflammation and immunity.
