Regnase-1 (also known as Zc3h12a and MCPIP1) is an RNase that destabilizes a set of mRNAs, including Il6 and Il12b, through cleavage of their 3' UTRs. Although Regnase-1 inactivation leads to development of an autoimmune disease characterized by T cell activation and hyperimmunoglobulinemia in mice, the mechanism of Regnase-1-mediated immune regulation has(More)
Toll-like receptor (TLR) signaling activates the inhibitor of transcription factor NF-κB (IκB) kinase (IKK) complex, which governs NF-κB-mediated transcription during inflammation. The RNase regnase-1 serves a critical role in preventing autoimmunity by controlling the stability of mRNAs that encode cytokines. Here we show that the IKK complex controlled(More)
The RIG-I-like receptors, retinoic acid inducible gene-1 (RIG-I), melanoma differentiation-associated protein 5, and laboratory of genetics and physiology-2, are cytoplasmic sensors for RNA viruses that mediate the antiviral innate immune responses. We demonstrate that really interesting new gene-finger domain- and K homology domain-containing MEX3C(More)
The development of effective treatments against cancers is urgently needed, and the accumulation of CD8+ T cells within tumors is especially important for cancer prognosis. Although their mechanisms are still largely unknown, growing evidence has indicated that innate immune cells have important effects on cancer progression through the production of(More)
