Interferon-alpha and interferon-gamma induced modulation of proteins in human corneal fibroblasts.


Little is known about the effects of interferon (IFN) on cell function in the eye. We have analyzed the effect of INF-alpha and IFN-gamma on the expression of proteins in cultured human corneal fibroblasts. Treatment with IFN-alpha increased the synthesis of proteins of 84, 76, 52, and 28 kD and decreased the synthesis of a 72-kD protein. Treatment with IFN… (More)
