Scientific Data

Western Blot Detection of Human IFN-alpha 6/IFNA6 antibody by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Human IFN-alpha 6/IFNA6 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of HEK001 human epidermal keratinocyte cell line and NHEK human normal epidermal keratinocytes. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human IFN-alpha 6/IFNA6 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB10212) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for IFN-alpha 6/IFNA6 at approximately 26 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Background: IFN-alpha 6/IFNA6

Interferon kappa, also known as IFN-kappa, is a 207 aminoacids protein that in humans is encoded by the IFNK gene. IFN-kappa is a member of the type I interferon family which also includes IFN-alpha, -beta, -epsilon, and -omega. Type I interferons are a group of related glycoproteins that play an important role in host defenses against viral infections. Human IFN-kappa has been detected in keratinocytes, monocytes, and monocyte-derived dendritic cells and is reported to have contact-dependent antiviral activity. Human papillomavirus (HPV) 16 oncogene expression, which is necessary for the development of cervical cancer, has been shown to down-regulate human IFN-kappa expression.
