Antibodies against human IFN-α

InvivoGen provides a collection of monoclonal antibodies targeting human interferons alpha for neutralization and detection.

Interferon-alpha (IFN-α) is a type I interferon that has both anti-viral and immunomodulatory activities [1]. IFN-α is produced primarily by plasmacytoid dendritic cells [2]. Thirteen different IFN-α subtypes have been described.

Although the reason for the multiple IFN-α subtypes is not fully understood, evidence suggests that they have distinct functions [3].
