The alloantigen differences stimulation migration inhibition factor (MIF) and immune interferon (i-IF) release in primary one-way murine mixed lymphocyte cultures are reported. Differences at H-2 and Mls coded alloantigens induce both MIF and i-IF release, while the differences at multiple minor histocompatibility antigens induce MIF release only. Both MIF and i-IF release are T-lymphocytes dependent events. However, while T-lymphocytes are sufficient for MIF release, the presence of macrophages is required for i-IF release.
