Native bovine interferon gamma is a 143 amino acid cytokine with potent activating, anti-viral and anti-proliferative properties. It is produced as a pro-peptide with an additional 23 amino acid N-terminal signal peptide sequence having a molecular weight of ~20 kDa.
IFNγ is predominantly secreted by activated T lymphocytes in response to specific mitogens as a result of infection and has numerous immunological regulatory functions. Properties include macrophage activation, upregulation of MHC class I and II molecules on various cells and induction of cytotoxicity.
