IFNK, also known as Interferon kappa, is a 207 amino acid protein that is 25 kDa, expressed in keratinocytes, monocytes and in resting dendritic cell; may be active in the regulation of immune cell function, imparts cellular protection against viral infection in a species-specific manner, activates the interferon-stimulated response element signaling pathway, binds heparin and directly modulate cytokine release from monocytes and dendritic cells. Disease research is currently being studied with relation to IFNK and interferon, dengue hemorrhagic fever, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, atopic dermatitis, hemorrhagic fever, systemic lupus, erythematosus, lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, lateral sclerosis, skin conditions cervicitis, dermatitis, psoriasis, melanoma, arthritis, and virus infection. This protein has been linked to the cytokine-cytokine receptor interaction, RIG-I-like receptor signaling pathway, Jak-STAT signaling pathway, and interferon pathway where it interacts with IFNAR1 and IFNAR2.
