Summaries for IFNA10 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for IFNA10 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that belongs to the type I interferon family of proteins, and is located in a cluster of alpha interferon genes on chromosome 9. Interferons are small regulatory molecules that function in cell signaling in response to viruses and other pathogens or tumor cells. This gene is intronless and the encoded protein is secreted. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2013]

GeneCards Summary for IFNA10 Gene

IFNA10 (Interferon Alpha 10) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with IFNA10 include Visual Cortex Disease and Visual Pathway Disease. Among its related pathways are Toll-like Receptor Signaling Pathway and Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus infection. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include cytokine activity and type I interferon receptor binding. An important paralog of this gene is IFNA4.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for IFNA10 Gene

  • Produced by macrophages, IFN-alpha have antiviral activities. Interferon stimulates the production of two enzymes: a protein kinase and an oligoadenylate synthetase.
