IL‑28A/IFN‑ lambda 2 Inhibition of EMCV‑induced Cytopathy and Neutralization by Human IL‑28A/IFN‑ lambda 2 Antibody.
Recombinant Human IL‑28A/IFN‑ lambda 2 (Catalog # 1587‑IL) reduces the Encephalomyocarditis Virus (EMCV)-induced cytopathy in the HepG2 human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). Inhibition of EMCV activity elicited by Recombinant Human IL‑28A/IFN‑ lambda 2 (0.1 µg/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Mouse Anti‑Human IL‑28A/IFN‑ lambda 2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB1587). The ND50 is typically 0.25‑1.0 µg/mL.

Background: IL-28A/IFN-lambda 2
IL-28A, IL-28B, and IL-29, also named interferon-lambda 2 (IFN-lambda 2), IFN-lambda 3, and IFN-lambda 1, respectively, are class II cytokine receptor ligands that are distantly related to members of the IL-10 family (11‑13% aa sequence identity) and type I IFN family (15‑19% aa sequence identity) (1‑3). The expression of IL-28A, B, and IL-29 is induced by virus infection or double-stranded RNA. All three cytokines exert bioactivities that overlap those of type I IFNs, including antiviral activity and up‑regulation of MHC class I antigen expression. The three proteins signal through the same heterodimeric receptor complex that is composed of the IL‑10 receptor beta (IL‑10 R beta ) and a novel IL‑28 receptor alpha (IL‑28 R alpha, also known as IFN-lambda R1). Ligand binding to the receptor complex induces Jak kinase activation and STAT1 and STAT2 tyrosine phosphorylation. The phosphorylated STAT1 and STAT2 complex with IFN-regulatory factor 9 (IRF-9) to form the IFN-stimulated regulatory factor 3 (ISGF-3) transcription factor complex that is translocated to the nucleus. ISGF-3 binds to the IFN-stimulated response element (ISRE) present in the regulatory regions of the target genes. Human IL-28A cDNA encodes a 200 amino acid (aa) residue precursor protein with a 25 aa signal peptide. It shares 94% and 67% aa sequence identity with human IL-28B and human IL-29, respectively.
