Background Information

RSAD2 (radical S-adenosyl methionine domain-containing protein 2), also known as CIG5 (cytomegalovirus-induced gene 5 protein), vig1, viperin or CIG33, displays antiviral effect against HIV-1 virus, hepatitis C virus, human cytomegalovirus, and aphaviruses. Expression of the protein can be induced by interferon. Western blot analysis of IFNG-treated cells revealed 43 kD/35kd bands.
