26896692 suggest that IFN-lambda4 protein expression associated with the IL28B-T/T variant preactivates the Janus kinase-Stat signaling
26741362 The described is the association with spontaneous hepatitis C viral clearance and genetic differentiation of IL28B/IFNL4 haplotypes in populations from Mexico.
26684959 this report shows that NF-kappa B, IRF3, IRF7, and the GC-rich DNA-binding transcription factor, Sp1, have key roles in stimulating transcription from the IFNL4 promoter.
26606750 data on ex vivo derived liver tissue samples argue against an attenuating impact of IFNL3 rs4803217 or IFNL4 rs368234815 minor alleles on hepatic IFNL3 gene expression in vivo.
26431156 IFNL4-DeltaG/TT genotype was not associated with HSV-related outcomes, including episodes of oral or genital herpes
26406534 Single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the interferon lambda 4 (IFNL4) gene are predictors for treatment success in patients with hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection
26372394 The hepatitis C protective allele TT was associated with decreased likelihood of HIV-1 infection in male intravenous drug users [odds ratio (OR): 0.3; P = 0.006], and this association was not modified by the genotype of CCR5.
26308395 Despite differences in protein sequences, functional properties of the recombinant human and nonhuman IFN-l4 proteins are comparable-they are all biologically active for induction of interferon signaling.
26225703 Single Nucleotide Polymorphism of Interferon Lambda-4 Gene is not Associated with Treatment Response to Pegylated Interferon in Chronic Hepatitis B.
26194286 Studies indicate that the type III interferons (IFNs) or IFN-lambdas consists of four members: IFN-lambda1 (IL-29), IFN-lambda2 (IL28A), IFN-lambda3 (IL-28B) and IFN-lambda4.
