IFN-γ is an acid-labile interferon produced by CD4 and CD8 T lymphocytes, as well as activated NK cells. IFN-γ receptors are present in most immune cells, which respond to IFN-γ signaling by increasing the surface expression of class I MHC proteins. This promotes the presentation of antigen to T-helper (CD4+) cells. IFN-γ signaling in antigen-presenting cells, and antigen-recognizing B and T lymphocytes, regulates the antigen-specific phases of the immune response. Additionally, IFN-γ stimulates a number of lymphoid cell functions, including the anti-microbial and anti-tumor responses of macrophages, NK cells, and neutrophils. Human IFN-γ is species-specific and is biologically active only in human and primate cells. Recombinant Rat IFN-γ is a 15.6 kDa protein containing 135 amino acid residues.
