Recombinant Human IFN-λ2

Product Details

Catalog Number: 300-02K
Description:

IFNλ1, 2, and 3 (also known as IL-29, IL-28A and IL-28B respectively) are distantly related to the IL-10 family and interferons.  All three IFN-lambdas use a distinct receptor system composed of an IFN-λR1 subunit (also called CRF2-12) and IL-10R2 subunit (also called CRF2-14).  Signaling through this receptor system induces antiviral defenses similar to, but distinct from, than that of type I interferons.  Recombinant Human IFN-λ2 is a 19.6 kDa protein containing 174 amino acid residues.
