Cell Signaling Technology Human Interferon-alpha-1 (hIFN-alpha-1) 10 ug
Manufacturer: Cell Signaling Technology 8927SF
8927SF , Interferon-α1 is a member of the Type I IFN (1) family best known for their antiviral activity. Most nucleated cells produce one or more Type I IFNs in response to viral infection (2). Secreted Type I IFN then induces viral protective responses in neighboring non-infected cells. Type I IFNs also enhance virus-induced apoptosis (3). Other IFN-α1 activities include enhancement of dendritic cell maturation and cytotoxic T cell activity (4). IFN-α1 binds to the IFN-αR1 and IFN-αR2 heterodimer (1). Intracellular signaling through the Jak/Stat pathway is best characterized (3). However, the PI3K, ERK, and p38 kinase pathways are also involved (5). The antiviral activities of the IFNs have led to their use in treating viral infections (4). Type I IFNs also appear to have an integral role in several autoimmune diseases (6).
