Alpha interferons are involved in virus resistance. They are known to block cell proliferation and to regulate MHC class I antigen expression. The IFNa family has pseudogenes in two families (I and II), one with a mature length of 166 aa and one of 172 aa. Cells producing IFN a are lymphocytes, monocytes, macrophages and cell lines such as Namalwa and KGI. Bioassays for IFNa include cytopathic effect blocking by viruses such as VSV, SFV and BMCV, on their target cells. A number of receptors for IFNa are now known and seem to be expressed on most cell types. Three forms of IFN alpha-2 exist; alpha-2a, alpha-2b and alpha-2c.
