Only a small percentage of the cells expressed the G protein on the surface membrane as indicated by immunostaining of transfected cells. When transfection was performed in the presence of monoclonal antibodies (Mab) to the glycoprotein, the production of interferon mRNA transcripts was reduced by over 50%. This indicates that the surface expression of G protein was the major mechanism of interferon induction and that most of the interferon was being expressed by cells neighbouring the transfected cells.
