Mechanistic differences between migration inhibitory factor (MIF) and IFN-gamma for macrophage activation. MIF and IFN-gamma synergize with lipid A to mediate migration inhibition but only IFN-gamma induces production of TNF-alpha and nitric oxide.

Abstract

Previously we found that murine macrophage migration inhibition (MMI) was mediated by IFN-gamma-priming and lipid A triggering. With the recent availability of human recombinant migration inhibitory factor (MIF), which is distinctly different from IFN-gamma and other cytokines, we have now attempted to explore possible mechanistic differences between IFN… (More)
