The human type I interferon (IFN) receptor consists of two essential subunits, huIFNaR1 and huIFNaR2; however, so far only IFNaR1 has been identified in other species. Furthermore, it has been suggested that in some species the type I IFN receptor may consist of a single subunit, since expression of murine IFNaR1 in human cells rendered them responsive to several type I murine IFNs. To resolve this issue, we screened a mouse cDNA library with a probe derived from huIFNaR2 cDNA. A cDNA clone… CONTINUE READING
