Phospholipase A2 inhibitor and LY6/PLAUR domain-containing protein PINLYP regulates type I interferon innate immunity

Significance Interferon (IFN)-mediated antiviral responses serve as the first line of the host innate immune defense against viral infection. Here we identify a previously uncharacterized protein designated phospholipase A2 inhibitor and LY6/PLAUR domain-containing protein (PINLYP), which is essential for embryonic development and plays an important role in type I IFN…

mitochondrial dna damage triggers an ifn mediated immune response

2.6 Mitochondrial Damage-Induced Mitochondrial DNA Release is Central to Chronic Kidney Disease-Induced Type-I-Interferon Response in Vascular Smooth Muscle Cells DNA released from nuclear or mitochondria is the main source of endogenous DNA that activates cGAS-STING pathway. This is thought to be mediated by the presence 75 of leaked mitochondrial DNA…
