IFNA8 (Interferon Alpha 8) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with IFNA8 include St. Louis Encephalitis. Among its related pathways are Response to elevated platelet cytosolic Ca2+ and RIG-I/MDA5 mediated induction of IFN-alpha/beta pathways. Produced by macrophages, IFN-alpha have antiviral activities. Interferon stimulates the production of two enzymes: a protein kinase and an oligoadenylate synthetase.
