Alkaline Phosphatase/ALPI Recombinant Protein

Interferon-alpha/beta receptor alpha chain (IFNAR1) is a type I membrane protein that forms one of the two chains of a receptor for interferons alpha and beta. Binding and activation of the receptor stimulates Janus protein kinases; which in turn phosphorylate several proteins; including STAT1 and STAT2. The encoded protein also functions as an antiviral factor. Tyk2 slows down IFNAR1 degradation and that this is due; at least in part; to inhibition of IFNAR1 endocytosis. Mutant versions of IFNAR1; in which Tyr466 is changed to phenylalanine; can act in a dominant negative manner to inhibit phosphorylation of STAT2. These observations are consistent with a model in which IFNAR1 mediates the interaction between JAK kinases and the STAT transcription factors.
