Effects of IFNs result from induction of a subset of genes, called IFN stimulated genes (ISGs). These ISGs are mainly implicated in anti-viral, anti-angiogenic, immunomodulatory, cell cycle inhibitory effects and apoptotic functions. All IFNA/B-stimulated genes have a conserved region of about 15bp in their promoter called the Interferon Stimulation Response Element (ISRE). The transcription factor ISGF3 binds to this ISRE and induce the transcription of these genes by IFN.
