IFN alpha-II-1

IFN-Omega 1 is a type I IFN, that can be induced by virus-infected leukocytes. Type I IFN family members, which include IFN-alpha, IFN-beta, and IFN-omega, signal through IFNAR-1/IFNAR-2 receptor complex, and wield antiviral and antiproliferative activities. IFNW1 exhibits about 75% sequence homology with IFN-a, and contains 2 conserved disulfide bonds, which are essential for full biological activity.
