Nonsensitized murine B lymphocytes produce mouse interferon α/β in response to foreign cells

Academic Article


  • Nonsensitized murine lymphocytes produced mouse interferon when cocultured with foreign and transformed cells. Neutralization tests revealed that this interferon was of the α/β type. The B lymphocyte appeared responsible for the bulk of the interferon production as determined by cell "panning," complement-mediated depletion, and immunofluorescence experiments. © 1983.
