Discovery of a host mRNA that inhibits immune functions of antiviral protein RIG-I
This study shows that, upon HCV infection, mRNA of selenoprotein P (SeP), a secretory protein produced primarily in the liver, binds to and inhibits the action of RIG-I, an antiviral protein, thus regulating innate immunity. RIG-I-mediated induction of interferon production is repressed by SeP mRNA, a host mRNA, affecting its antiviral activity. These results should lead to further elucidation of mechanisms underlying the association between metabolic disorders and virus-induced innate immunity dysfunction. (2019-04-10)
