27049098 macrophage migration inhibitory factor is an important cell factor which plays a regulating role in the immune system, as it can inhibit macrophage migration and promote the gathering, infiltration and proliferation of macrophages at inflammatory sites.
26976591 strong evidence that carriage of high-expression MIF alleles is a genetic marker of morbidity and mortality of pneumococcal meningitis
26952810 Our data suggested that MIF affected the intrinsic properties of tumors and the host immune response in tumor microenvironment by regulating the TLR4/HMGB1 axis, leading to metastasis of breast cancer
26884830 miR-451 was down-regulated in renal cell carcinoma and correlated with histological grade and lymphatic metastasis. MIF was identified as a target of miR-451, and down-regulation of MIF could mimic the suppressive functions of miR-451.
26872252 The critical element of the Gremlin-1 molecule for regulating MIF-induced chemotactic activity lies at the C-terminal region. A single amino acid exchange of an arginine to an alanine residue is sufficient to abolish the antagonistic effect of Gremlin-1 on MIF. The Gremlin-1 mutant R172A failed to reduce MIF-induced monocyte differentiation into macrophages.
26858459 High expression levels of macrophage migration inhibitory factor sustain the innate immune responses of neonates.
26852939 Syndecan-1 on epithelial tumor cells promotes MIF binding and MIF-mediated cell migration. This may represent a relevant mechanism through which MIF enhances tumor cell motility and metastasis.
26829742 MIF -173CC and GPX1 594TT and high-fat diet are the risk factors for ulcerative colitis.
26825917 Our results suggested that the CC genotype and C allele of MIF rs755622 SNP may be a genetic marker for the risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) and potentially predict the severity of CAD in Chinese Kazakh population.
26752645 These findings identify ICBP90 as a key regulator of MIF transcription and provide functional insight into the regulation of the polymorphic MIF locus.
