Background: IFNAB

The interferons (IFN) are a family of cytokines with potent antiviral, antiproliferative and immunomodulatory properties, and are classified based on their binding specificity to cell surface receptors (1). The type I IFNs bind to the interferon alpha receptor (IFNAR), which consists of two subunits: IFNAR1 ( alpha-subunit) and IFNAR2 ( beta-subunit). This binding contributes to TNF alpha induced signaling (2, 3). Both the human and mouse genome code for more than a dozen closely related IFN alpha subtypes and the various IFN alpha share about 80% sequence homology among them (4, 5). The mouse IFNAB consists of 190 amino acids (aa) including a 23 aa signal peptide and a 167 aa IFNAB main chain. It was found that IFNAB plays an important role in the regulation of DNA synthesis in colong-stimulating factor (CSF)-1-stimulated macrophage, as well as mediates the inhibitory efffects of LPS and TNF alpha (6). IFN regulatory factor 2 (IRF-2) controls IFNAB signaling and the absence of its negative regulation selectively affects development of the CD8 alpha- myeloid DC population (7).
