MIF Rat Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 115 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 12.5kDa. The MIF is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
The cytokine Macrophage Migration Inhibitor (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.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Lyophilized from a 0.2
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized MIF in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized MIF althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution MIF should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
