Interferons articles from across Nature Portfolio

Interferons are glycoprotein cytokines secreted by host lymphocytes in response to pathogens. Interferons activate or upregulate immune cells by interacting with receptors that activate signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT) signalling complexes. This ultimately leads to clearance of the pathogen or clearance of tumour cells from the organism.
