Assay Used to Measure Bioactivity: Interferon was titrated with the use of the cytopathic effect inhibition assay as described [Rubinstein, S. et al (1981), J. Virol. 37, 755-758]; [Familletti, P.C. et al (1981), Methods in Enzymology, Vol. 78 387-394]. In this antiviral assay for interferon about 1 unit/ml of interferon is the quantity necessary to produce a cytopathic effect of 50%. As there is no international Rat IFN-beta standard, units are determined with respect to the international reference standard for mouse interferon alpha/beta (mouse IFN- alpha/beta ) provided by the National Institutes of Health. After receipt, this product should be kept at 4ÂșC while lyophilized and at -70°C after reconstitution in sterile distilled water for retention of full activity. When thawing, the contents of the tube should be apportioned in separate tubes so that freezing and thawing is kept to a minimum. Further dilute only in buffers containing protein such as 0.1% bovine serum albumin (BSA).
