IFN-alpha 4 in Mouse Spleen. IFN-alpha 4 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of mouse spleen using Rat Anti-Mouse IFN-alpha 4 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB10259) at 5 µg/mL for 1 hour at room temperature followed by incubation with the Anti-Rat IgG VisUCyte™ HRP Polymer Antibody (Catalog # VC005). Before incubation with the primary antibody, tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # CTS013). Tissue was stained using DAB (brown) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to macrophages.

Background: IFN-alpha 4

The interferons (IFN) are a family of cytokines with potent antiviral, antiproliferative and immunomodulatory properties, and are classified based on their binding specificity to cell surface receptors (1). The type I IFNs bind to the interferon alpha receptor (IFNAR), which consists of two subunits: IFNAR1 ( alpha -subunit) and IFNAR2 ( beta -subunit). This binding contributes to TNF-alpha induced signaling (2, 3). Both the human and mouse genome code for more than a dozen closely related IFN-alpha subtypes and the various IFN-alphas share about 80% sequence homology among them (4, 5). The mouse IFN-alpha 4 consists of 186 amino acids (aa) including a 24 aa signal peptide and a 162 aa IFN-alpha 4 mature domain. The mature mouse IFN-alpha 4 shares 58% and 76% sequence identity with mature human and rat IFN-alpha 4, respectively. The mouse IFN-alpha 4 reduces the local replication of murine cytomegalovirus in the tibia muscle (6). mIFN-A4 is a strong activator of Mx gene and  was shown to be very effective in reducing splenomegaly (7).
