Abstract

Summary

Five human interferon-α (leukocyte) subtypes derived from genes cloned in have been compared for their ability to induce antiviral activity against vesicular stomatitis virus infection of various mammalian cell cultures. These interferons, designated LeIF-A (IFN-α), -B, -C, -D (IFN-α) and LeIF-F, show different relative activities when assayed on human, bovine, hamster, mouse, rabbit and monkey cell lines. As with a natural human buffy-coat interferon-α preparation, three subtypes (LeIF-B, -C and -D) showed considerable activity on RK-13 rabbit cells, but two (LeIF-D and -F) also showed some activity on mouse L-929 cells. Of the five interferon subtypes examined, LeIF-F demonstrated the highest degree of species specificity.
