Fish type I and type II interferons: composition, receptor usage, production and function

The variation in the composition of type I and type II IFNs as well as in their receptors in some cyprinid and salmonid fish has also been reviewed and it is suggested that future perspectives for the research on type II and type I IFNs in fish are outlined from a comparative and evolutionary point of view.

Structural and Functional Analyses of Type I IFNa Shed Light Into Its Interaction With Multiple Receptors in Fish

The results demonstrate that fish type I IFNs, although structurally conserved, interact with the receptors in a manner that may differ from mammalian homologs.



Identification of Two Subgroups of Type I IFNs in Perciforme Fish Large Yellow Croaker Larimichthys crocea Provides Novel Insights into Function and Regulation of Fish Type I IFNs

This study identified two type I IFNs in the Perciforme fish large yellow croaker Larimichthys crocea and identified the recombinant IFNh, shown to be more potent to trigger a rapid induction of the antiviral genes MxA and protein kinase R than the IFNd, suggesting that they may play distinct roles in regulating early antiviral immunity.

Salmonids Have an Extraordinary Complex Type I IFN System: Characterization of the IFN Locus in Rainbow Trout Oncorhynchus mykiss Reveals Two Novel IFN Subgroups

The results demonstrate that the IFN system of salmonids is far more complex than previously realized, and in-depth research is required to fully understand its regulation and function.

Identification of a Second Group of Type I IFNs in Fish Sheds Light on IFN Evolution in Vertebrates1

The data overall support the concept that different vertebrate groups have independently expanded their IFN types, with deletion of different pairs of cysteines apparent in fish group I IFN and IFN-βε of mammals.

Identification of an additional two-cysteine containing type I interferon in rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss provides evidence of a major gene duplication event within this gene family in teleosts

Analysis of the regulatory elements in the IFN promoter region predicted several binding sites for key transcription factors that potentially play an important role in mediating IFN5 gene expression, which demonstrates that two subgroups are apparent within each of the 2C and 4C type I IFNs.
