Interferons are cytokines that are widely known to induce potent anti-viral activity. Interferon -α exerts a variety of other biological effects, including antitumor and immunomodulatory activities and are increasingly used clinically to treat a range of malignancies, myelodysplasias and autoimmune diseases. IFNA1 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 167 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 19.5 kDa. The IFN-alpha 1 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
