Chemical Interferon-gamma

Name Interferon-gamma
CAS Type 1 Name Interferon gamma (human lymphocyte protein moiety reduced)
Equivalent Terms gamma-Interferon | Immune Interferon | Interferon, gamma | Interferon, Immune | Interferon Type II | Interferon, Type II | Type II Interferon
CAS Registry Number 82115-62-6
Definition The major interferon produced by mitogenically or antigenically stimulated LYMPHOCYTES. It is structurally different from TYPE I INTERFERON and its major activity is immunoregulation. It has been implicated in the expression of CLASS II HISTOCOMPATIBILITY ANTIGENS in cells that do not normally produce them, leading to AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES.
