Interferon-tau (IFNtau) is a unique type I IFN secreted by the ruminant conceptus that acts in a paracrine manner on the endometrial epithelium to signal pregnancy recognition. In the ovine endometrium, IFNtau suppresses estrogen receptor alpha and oxytocin receptor gene expression, but increases or induces expression of IFN-simulated genes (ISGs), including signal transducer and activator of transcription-1 (STAT1), STAT2, ISG factor-3gamma (ISGF3gamma)/p48/IFN regulatory factor-9, and 2',5… CONTINUE READING
