|Target/Specificity||Rabbit anti-Chicken Interferon beta antibody recognizes chicken Interferon beta (chIFN-beta). Reports suggest that chIFN exhibits properties similar to mammalian IFN type I (IFNI).Functional studies revealed the presence of two distantly related IFNI genes, designated as IFN alpha and IFN beta, found on chicken chromosome Z. The serological distinction between these two IFNs has been verified using neutralisation assays, and there is evidence that the antiviral activity of chIFN-beta is approximately ten-fold less compared to chIFN-alpha. This would suggest that chIFNbeta might have a different physiological role, though chIFN-beta is expressed strongly in virus-infected cells. Rabbit anti-Chicken Interferon beta antibody (ABD11505) does not cross react with IFN gamma.This antiserum neutralizes chIFN-beta and can be used to discriminate IFN alpha and IFN beta bioactivities, (Schwarz, H.et al.).|
