Human IFN-Alpha I (Alpha 17)
Catalog Number: 11150
Human Interferon Alpha 17 recombinant protein expressed in E.coli.
Recombinant Human Interferon Alpha I (alpha 17) obtained from human leukocyte mRNA expressed in E.coli.
IFN alpha 17 is one of the many interferon alpha subtypes belonging to the Type I leukocyte IFN family. The Type I IFN family has antiviral, anti-proliferative, and natural killer cell activities.
- Expression induced by viral infection
