Interferon (IFN) is a kind of protein with a wide range of biological activities. It has various physiological functions such as regulating the body's immune function, anti-virus and anti-tumor. IFN is an important part of the body's defense system.
Creative Proteomics can provide interferons detection platform for scientific research. According to different purposes, our professional analysts will customize exclusive solutions for you. We aim to provide customers with high-quality and convenient services to help you accelerate the progress of your project.
We mainly provide the Luminex cytokine detection platform. Luminex uses fluorescently encoded microspheres with specific antibodies to different target molecules. The different microspheres can be combined freely to a certain extent so that up to 100 analytes can be tested multiple times simultaneously in a single experiment.
The Luminex cytokine assay platform has the following advantages:
For your different needs, we can also provide the following detection methods:
Creative Proteomics has developed a multi-interferon detection platform. Our services are not limited to providing interferon testing, we can also provide other cytokine testing. If you want to test other types of cytokines, you can contact us. Our professional analysts will communicate with you. We are looking forward to cooperating with you.
Preliminary classification is carried out according to the animal source of IFN, and then divided into different types according to the difference in antigenic characteristics and molecular structure of IFN. Within a specific type, differences in amino acid sequence or composition can be divided into subtypes.
IFN is divided into type I and type II. Type I IFN is divided into α, β, τ and ω types. The structure of each type is similar, all of which are single-copy or multi-copy genes without introns. Type I IFN induced by viruses, microorganisms and their products are mainly involved in anti-virus and anti-tumor. There is only one type II IFN, namely IFN-γ. IFN-γ is produced by lymphocytes stimulated by mitogens or specific antigens, and is mainly involved in inducing the expression of MHC antigens and immunomodulating effects. But its antiviral effect is weaker than type I IFN.
