IFN-omega Gene Sequence, Family, Fuction and Expression Information

IFN-omega cDNA / Gene Overview

IFNW1 gene / cDNA is a protein-coding gene which located on 9p21.3. The IFNW1 gene is conserved in chimpanzee, Rhesus monkey, and cow.19 organisms have orthologs with human gene IFNW1.

IFN-omega cDNA / Gene Function

The protein encoded by this gene is an interferon and possesses antiviral activity. The encoded protein binds to the interferon alpha/beta receptor but not to the interferon gamma receptor. This intronless gene has several pseudogenes spread throughout the genome. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2015]
