Interferons (IFNs) are the key coordinators of antiviral immunity by binding to their receptors to orchestrate a complex transcriptional network in vertebrates. Recently, the existence of molluscan IFN-like system has been certified by the identification of important components in IFN system, such as IFN-like protein (CgIFNLP) from oyster Crassostrea gigas. In the present study, a novel CgIFNLP receptor (designed CgIFNLPR-1) was identified from C. Read More
