Regulation of gene expression by pegylated IFN-alpha2b and IFN-alpha2b in human peripheral blood mononuclear cells.

The pleiotropic biologic effects of interferon (IFN) are mediated through regulation of the expression of numerous IFN-sensitive genes. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) obtained from healthy donors were analyzed to study the immunoregulatory and antiviral messenger RNAs (mRNAs) and proteins regulated by pegylated IFN-alpha2b (PEG-IFN-alpha2b) and… (More)
