Macrophage migration inhibitory factor is a ubiquitous multifunctional cytokine having diverse immunological and neuroendocrine properties. Although this protein is known to be released into the circulation from the secretory granules of anterior pituitary or directly from immune cells as a consequence of stress, its participation in heat stress-induced aggregation of proteins has not yet been reported. We provide here the first evidence that the macrophage migration inhibitory factor possesses… CONTINUE READING
