MIF is a chemokine-like inflammatory mediator that triggers leukocyte recruitment by binding to CXCR2 and CXCR4. (Demonstrated in murine model)
InnateDB Annotation from Orthologs
Summary
[Mus musculus] Gm16379 (Mif) is a chemokine-like inflammatory mediator that triggers leukocyte recruitment by binding to Cxcr2 and Cxcr4.
Entrez Gene
Summary This gene encodes a lymphokine involved in cell-mediated immunity, immunoregulation, and inflammation. It plays a role in the regulation of macrophage function in host defense through the suppression of anti-inflammatory effects of glucocorticoids. This lymphokine and the JAB1 protein form a complex in the cytosol near the peripheral plasma membrane, which may indicate an additional role in integrin signaling pathways.
