Example sentences for: interferon

How can you use “interferon” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • CFA = complete Freund's adjuvant; CIA = collagen-induced arthritis; ELISA = enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay; FACS = fluorescence-activated cell sorting; FITC = fluorescein isothiocyanate; H & E = hematoxylin and eosin; IFN = interferon; IL = interleukin; MHC = major histocompatibility complex; PCR = polymerase chain reaction; Th cells = T helper cells; TNF-α = tumor necrosis factor alpha; WT = DBA/1 wildtype.

  • Gene names or terms included in gene names are therefore not necessary for the formation of meaningful clusters but may have a significant role: terms such as 'NFkappaB or 'interferon', which are found throughout the literature on genes involved in these pathways, will generate valid associations.

  • Indeed, tumor necrosis factor α (TNFα), interferon gamma (IFNγ) and/or interleukin-1 beta (IL-1β) have all been shown to reduce gonadotrophin-induced progesterone synthesis in a number of species [ 8 9 10 11 12 ] , and TNFα and IFNγ are known to increase PGF 2α production by steroidogenic cells [ 13 14 15 ] . Steroidogenic cell apoptotic paradigms are activated by cytokines generated by several cell types within the CL, including immune cells and endothelial cells [ 7 11 16 ] . The synergistic actions of IFNγ and TNFα, for example, induce steroidogenic cell apoptosis [ 13 17 ] , as does soluble Fas ligand (FasL) [ 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 ] . Furthermore, several acute intracellular signaling events either required for, or associated with, the functional and structural aspects of luteal regression have been mapped using in vitro steroidogenic cell cultures [ 8 27 28 ] .

  • Several groups of genes involved in different aspects of the immune response to an infection were uncovered by literature profiling (interferon response, chemotaxis, inflammation: Figure 6d,6f, and 6g, respectively).

  • CIA = collagen-induced arthritis; ELISA = enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay; Th = T helper; PG = proteoglycan; IFN = interferon; IL = interleukin; SEM = standard error of the mean.
