The influenza virus PB1-F2 protein has interferon antagonistic activity
Abstract PB1-F2 is a nonstructural protein of influenza viruses encoded by the PB1 gene segment from a +1 open reading frame. It has been shown that PB1-F2 contributes to viral pathogenicity,Expand

Inhibition of p38 Mitogen-activated Protein Kinase Impairs Influenza Virus-induced Primary and Secondary Host Gene Responses and Protects Mice from Lethal H5N1 Infection*
Background: Early cytokine dysregulation upon infection with highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses (HPAIV) is a major determinant of viral pathogenicity. Results: p38 MAPK controls HPAIV-inducedExpand

β-catenin promotes the type I IFN synthesis and the IFN-dependent signaling response but is suppressed by influenza A virus-induced RIG-I/NF-κB signaling
BackgroundThe replication cycle of most pathogens, including influenza viruses, is perfectly adapted to the metabolism and signal transduction pathways of host cells. After infection, influenzaExpand

The LIM-Only Protein FHL2 Attenuates Lung Inflammation during Bleomycin-Induced Fibrosis
Fibrogenesis is usually initiated when regenerative processes have failed and/or chronic inflammation occurs. It is characterised by the activation of tissue fibroblasts and dysregulated synthesis ofExpand

A single point mutation (Y89F) within the non-structural protein 1 of influenza A viruses limits epithelial cell tropism and virulence in mice.
The nonstructural protein 1 (A/NS1) of influenza A viruses (IAV) harbors several src homology (SH)-binding motifs (bm) that mediate interactions with cellular proteins. In contrast to the sequenceExpand

Mss4 protein is a regulator of stress response and apoptosis
Mss4 (mammalian suppressor of Sec4) is an evolutionarily highly conserved protein and shows high sequence and structural similarity to nucleotide exchange factors. Although Mss4 tightly binds aExpand

Phosphorylation of influenza A virus NS1 protein at threonine 49 suppresses its interferon antagonistic activity
Phosphorylation and dephosphorylation acts as a fundamental molecular switch that alters protein function and thereby regulates many cellular processes. The non‐structural protein 1 (NS1) ofExpand

Interleukin‐27 displays interferon‐γ–like functions in human hepatoma cells and hepatocytes
Interleukin‐27 (IL‐27) is a cytokine belonging to the IL‐6/IL‐12 cytokine family. It is secreted by antigen‐presenting cells, strongly acts on T cells, and also stimulates innate immune cells. InExpand

Inhibition of p 38 mitogen-activated protein kinase impairs influenza virus-induced primary and secondary host gene responses and protects mice from lethal H 5 N 1 infection
Highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses (HPAIV) induce severe inflammation in poultry and men. One characteristic of HPAIV infections is the induction of a cytokine burst that strongly contributesExpand
