Abstract

Abstract We have identified two different and independent effects of sodium butyrate on induction and action of interferon. In the monkey cell line, GL-V3, simultaneous treatment with interferon and butyrate strongly reduced the antiviral activity of the interferon preparation, Whereas addition of butyrate before interferon or after establishment of the antiviral state had no effect. Interferon production induced by Sendai virus was also reduced by simultaneous treatment with butyrate, but pretreatment resulted in marked enhancement of interferon yields. Whereas the inhibitory effects of simultaneous butyrate treatment were also observed in human (WISH) and bovine (MDBK) cells, pretreatment with butyrate in these cells had no effect on interferon yields.
