Tech Info & Data
Mouse IFN-Alpha 11 was originally identified as an interferon whose expression was not upregulated by viral infection of cells [Coulombel et al. (1991) Gene 104(2):187]
Expression of Mouse IFN-Alpha 11 is induced by poly(I):poly(C) and some virus, but not others in L929 cells [Fung et al. (2004) J. Imm. Meth. 284:177]. It has been suggested that expression of this IFN may be regulated by OCT-1 and Ptx-1 [Mesplede et al. (2005) Mol. Cell Biol. 25(19):8717, Lopez et al. Mol. Cell Biol. 10(20):7527]. Additionally, a number of studies have suggested that the expression of this IFN is tightly regulated [reviewed by Doly et al. (1998) Cell. Mol. Life Sci. 54:1109].
Summary: Mouse IFN-Alpha 11 is a high-activity interferon whose expression has been extensively studied and is tightly regulated.
