Interferon alpha/beta receptor 1 (IPR016669)

Short name: Interferon_alpha/beta_rcpt-1

Family relationships



The interferon-alpha/beta receptor 1 family of proteins associates with IFNAR2 to form the type I interferon receptor. Binding of interferons alpha and beta to type I IFNs triggers tyrosine phosphorylation of a number of proteins including JAKs, TYK2, STAT proteins and IFNR alpha- and beta-subunits themselves.
