Interferon alpha/beta receptor 1 ( IFNAR1) is also known as Cytokine receptor class-II member 1, Cytokine receptor family 2 member 1 (CRF2-1), Type I interferon receptor 1, IFNAR, which belongs to the type II cytokine receptor family. IFNAR1 /IFNAR contains four fibronectin type-III domains. IFNAR1 associates with IFNAR2 to form the type I interferon receptor. IFNAR1 is receptor for interferons alpha and beta. IFNAR1 can transduce IFNB signals without the help of IFNAR2, and not activating the Jak-STAT pathway.
