Synonyms: IFN-α1 | IFN-α13 | IFN-alpha 1/13 | interferon alpha-1/13 | interferon alpha-D
Compound class: Endogenous peptide in human, mouse or rat
Comment: Interferon-αs are type I IFNs (includes IFNαs, IFN-β, IFN-ε, IFN-κ and IFN-ω). In humans, there are 13 different IFN-α genes , but only 12 functional human IFN-α proteins, since IFN-α1 and IFN-α13 have identical protein sequences despite being encoded by separate genes.
