  Domain Name: IFab
Interferon alpha, beta. Includes also interferon omega and tau. Different from interferon gamma family. Type I interferons(alpha, beta) belong to the larger helical cytokine superfamily, which includes growth hormones, interleukins, several colony-stimulating factors and several other regulatory molecules. All function as regulators of cellular activty by interacting with cell-surface receptors and activating various signalling pathways. Interferons produce antiviral and antiproliferative responses in cells. Receptor specificity determines function of the various members of the family.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.

Tips:
 If you've navigated here from a protein, hovering over a position on the weblogo will display the corresponding protein position for that domain position.

 The histograms below the weblogo indicate mutations found on the domain. Red is for disease (OMIM) and blue is for SNPs.

 Functional Features are displayed as orange boxes under the histograms. You can choose which features are displayed in the box below.
