Recombinant Human Interferon Omega 1
Interferon omega 1 is a member of the type I family of interferons. It is the only functional interferon omega gene in humans; many pseudogenes of interferon omega exist in humans, some of which are functional in non-primate placental mammals. Expression of IFNW1 is seen in leukocytes in response to viral infection or treatment with double-stranded RNA. It stimulates NK cell activity, enhances expression of major histocompatibility complex class I antigens, and inhibits proliferation of lymphocytes stimulated with mitogens or allogeneic cells. It also inhibits proliferation of a variety of tumor cell lines in vitro.
