Background of MIF

Macrophage migration inhibitory factor, MIF, is a cytokine released by T-lymphocytes, macrophages, and the pituitary gland that serves to integrate peripheral and central inflammatory responses. MIF gene has 3 exons separated by introns of only 189 and 95 bp, and covers less than 1kb. Localization of the human gene for macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) to chromosome 22q11.2. MIF plays a critical role in inflammatory diseases and atherogenesis.

Antibody Validation

Boster validates all antibodies on WB, IHC, ICC, Immunofluorescence and ELISA with known positive and negative samples to ensure specificity and high affinity.

I took a look at the website and datasheets of our anti-MIF antibody and it seems that RP1020 has been tested on human in both ELISA and WB. Thus RP1020 should work for your application. Our Boster satisfaction guarantee will cover this product for WB in human even if the specific tissue type has not been validated. We do have a comprehensive range of products for WB detection and you can check out our website to find out more information about them.

We are currently using anti-MIF antibody RP1020 for human tissue, and we are well pleased with the ELISA results. The species of reactivity given in the datasheet says human. Is it likely that the antibody can work on goat tissues as well?

Asked: 2019-09-11


The anti-MIF antibody (RP1020) has not been validated for cross reactivity specifically with goat tissues, but there is a good chance of cross reactivity. We have an innovator award program that if you test this antibody and show it works in goat you can get your next antibody for free. Please contact me if I can help you with anything.
