The type I interferons consist of 14 different alpha isoforms (subtypes with slightly different specificities), and single beta, omega, epsilon and kappa isoforms. Homologous molecules are found in many species, including rats and mice (and most mammals), and have been identified in birds, reptiles and fish species. Interferon alpha is produced primarily by plasmacytoid dendritic cells and is a potent component of the anti viral innate immune response; it modulates adaptive immunity.
