Gene: IFNW1 (interferon omega 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: IFNW1
Name: interferon omega 1
Description: Predicted to have cytokine activity and type I interferon receptor binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including B cell activation; lymphocyte activation involved in immune response; and positive regulation of peptidyl-serine phosphorylation of STAT protein. Predicted to localize to the extracellular space.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: IFN-omega 1, interferon omega-1; interferon alpha-II-1; interferon omega-1; interferon, omega 1
