Characterization of a human gene inducible by alpha- and beta-interferons and its expression in mouse cells.


An intact interferon-inducible gene has been isolated from a cosmid library of human genomic DNA. The gene (designated 6-16) encodes a mRNA of approximately 1 kb which is induced well by alpha- and beta- but poorly by gamma-interferons. Genomic and cDNA sequences indicate that the gene contains five exons, and that the mRNA encodes a hydrophobic polypeptide… (More)
