IFN-α 2b, Human

2 μg of IFN-α 2b, Human (Cat. No. Z03002) was resolved with SDS-PAGE under reducing (R) and non-reducing (N) conditions and visualized by Coomassie Blue staining.2 μg of IFN-α 2b, Human (Cat. No. Z03002) was resolved with SDS-PAGE under reducing (R) and non-reducing (N) conditions and visualized by Coomassie Blue staining.

IFN-α 2b, Human

Interferon-Alpha 2b (IFN-Alpha 2b) produced by leukocytes is a member of Interferon family. IFN-alpha is mainly involved in innate immune response against a broad range of viral infections. IFN-alpha 2 has three acid stable forms (a,b,c) signaling through IFNAR2. IFN-alpha 2b shares 99.4% aa sequence identity with both IFN-alpha 2a and 2c. IFN-alpha contains four highly conserved cysteine residues which form two disulfide bonds, one of which is necessary for biological activity.
