Monokine Induced by Gamma Interferon
Monokine Induced by Gamma Interferon (MIG; CXCL9) is a small cytokine belonging to the family of CXC chemokines. MIG is a T-cell chemoattractant whose expression is induced by interferon gamma. MIG production has proven to be a sensitive measure of antigen-specific IFN production. It affects the growth, movement, and activation state of cells that participate in immune and inflammatory response. MIG is chemotactic for activated T-cells and binds to CXCR3.
