MIF has been described to be associated with autophagy in a number of studies, but the full nature of their association is not yet clear. However, the unprecedented interest in autophagy in recent times has generated a number of tools and techniques for its study. Here, we present protocols for studying the interactions between MIF and autophagy, including for the induction and inhibition of autophagy and measuring autophagosome biogenesis and maturation.
