Specifications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab75432 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

  • Applications

    SDS-PAGE

    Functional Studies

  • Purity> 95 % SDS-PAGE.
    Purity is approximately 97% as determined by analysis by RP-HPLC and reducing and non-reducing SDS-PAGE. Endotoxin level as measured by LAL is <0.01ng/ug or <0.1EU/ug.
  • FormLyophilised
  • Additional notes


    ab75432 acts as an inflammatory mediator consisting of two alpha-helices and six beta-strands, four of which form a beta-sheet structure. The remaining two beta-strands interact with other MIF molecules forming a trimer in solution. MIF acts on fibroblasts by inducing IL-1, IL-8 and MMP expression. MIF stimulates NO production and TNF-alpha release following IFN-gamma activation on macrophages.

  • FunctionPro-inflammatory cytokine. Involved in the innate immune response to bacterial pathogens. The expression of MIF at sites of inflammation suggests a role as mediator in regulating the function of macrophages in host defense. Counteracts the anti-inflammatory activity of glucocorticoids. Has phenylpyruvate tautomerase and dopachrome tautomerase activity (in vitro), but the physiological substrate is not known. It is not clear whether the tautomerase activity has any physiological relevance, and whether it is important for cytokine activity.
  • Involvement in diseaseGenetic variations in MIF are associated with susceptibility to rheumatoid arthritis systemic juvenile (RASJ) [MIM:604302]. An inflammatory articular disorder with systemic-onset beginning before the age of 16. It represents a subgroup of juvenile arthritis associated with severe extraarticular features and occasionally fatal complications. During active phases of the disorder, patients display a typical daily spiking fever, an evanescent macular rash, lymphadenopathy, hepatosplenomegaly, serositis, myalgia and arthritis.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the MIF family.
  • Cellular localizationSecreted. Cytoplasm. Does not have a cleavable signal sequence and is secreted via a specialized, non-classical pathway. Secreted by macrophages upon stimulation by bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS), or by M.tuberculosis antigens.
  • Information by UniProt
