Interferon alpha 2a (IFN-alpha-2a) belongs to class I interferons. Interferons are produced by the cells of the innate immune system as a part of the defense response to foreign agents such as viruses, parasites and tumor cells. Interferons (class I) bind to a specific cell-surface receptor leading to the transcription and translation of genes coding for proteins having antiviral, antiproliferate and antioncogenic effects, as well as modulating the immune response. IFN-alpha-2a inhibits viral replication within host cells, activates natural killer cells and macrophages and increases antigen presentation to T-lymphocytes. It has been used in the treatment of hepatitis C and various cancers, including leukemia. Benefits of NovActive(TM) Proteins
Advantages of barley endosperm Folding
- Fully Active
- -Fully folded naturally by eukaryotic source
- -Comparable for eukaryotic glycosylation
- BioRisk Free
- -infection reagent-free
- -low in proteolyic activity
- -low in pyrogenic and pro-inflammatory activity
- Just reconstitute and add to your cell culture.
- Have FDA G.R.A.S. (generally recognized as safe) approval.
-Proficient protein machinery, with eukaryotic folding, allows for native formation of the protein and long term protection and storage. Environment
-A biochemically inert environment, void of endotoxins, low protease activity and secondary metabolite content, and a simple protein profile, aid in downstream processing in barley. FDA G.R.A.S status
-Barley is recognized by the FDA as having G.R.A.S (generally recognized as safe) status.
