Genes In The Interferon System Important In Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

...ty.The study, comprising nearly 2,000 individuals, shows that two genes inthe interferon system are very strongly associated with the diseaseSLE. One of the genes codes for a so-called thyrosinkinase enzyme,whose function is to convey signals from interferon outside the cellsto the cell nucleus."We found t...
