AIMS Cardiac surgery involves myocardial ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) with potentially deleterious consequences. Macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) is a stress-regulating chemokine-like cytokine that protects against I/R damage, but functional links with its homolog, d-dopachrome tautomerase (MIF-2), and the circulating soluble receptor CD74 (sCD74)(More)
D-dopachrome tautomerase (D-DT/MIF-2) is a member of the macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) cytokine superfamily, and a close structural homolog of MIF. MIF and D-DT have been reported to be involved in obesity, but there is little known about the regulation of D-DT in adipose tissue inflammation and wound healing. Subcutaneous adipose tissue was(More)
