Polypeptide inhibitors of gamma interferon

Image Number 4 for United States Patent #5632988.

Novel synthetic polypeptides comprising the amino acid subsequence Arg-Arg-Lys-Trp-Gln are provided by this invention. Also provided are methods for the use of such polypeptides, other known polypeptides containing such subsequence and a variety of acidic or basic polypeptides and proteins as inhibitors of the binding of gamma interferon to its cellular receptors. The methods of this invention are potentially applicable to the treatment of pathological conditions believed to be mediated by gamma interferon, such as autoimmune disease.
