RIG-I is a key cytosolic RNA sensor that mediates innate immune defense against RNA virus. Aberrant RIG-I activity leads to severe pathological states such as autosomal dominant multi-system disorder, inflammatory myophathies and dermatomyositis. Therefore, identification of regulators that ensure efficient defense without harmful immune-pathology is(More)
We present a description of the system submitted to the Semantic Textual Similarity (STS) shared task at SemEval 2016. The task is to assess the degree to which two sentences carry the same meaning. We have designed two different methods to automatically compute a similarity score between sentences. The first method combines a variety of semantic similarity(More)
RIG-I is a cytosolic receptor recognizing virus-specific RNA structures and initiates an antiviral signaling that induces the production of interferons and proinflammatory cytokines. Because inappropriate RIG-I signaling affects either viral clearance or immune toxicity, multiple regulations of RIG-I have been investigated since its discovery as the viral(More)
