Interferons: Their Purification and Characterization
Cells which encounter a variety of substances called (by interferonologists) “interferon-inducers” begin to produce and release substances which are called (perhaps again only by interferonologists, but maybe other names by investigators of different orientation) “interferons”, which among other activities, induce cells to become virus resistant. In this Section, I shall try to define interferons, describe how they have been purified and present evidence that they are responsible for the pleiotypic activities attributed to them in subsequent Sections.
