The 2'-5' oligoadenylate synthetases (OAS) are interferon-induced antiviral enzymes that recognize virally produced dsRNA and initiate RNA destabilization through activation of RNase L within infected cells. However, recent evidence points toward several RNase L-independent pathways, through which members of the OAS family can exert antiviral activity. The(More)
Viral infection of mammalian cells prompts the innate immune system to initiate an antiviral response. The recognition of the virus triggers several antiviral signalling pathways, which among others include the family of 2'-5' oligoadenylate synthetase (OAS) proteins. The p59 protein encoded by the OAS-like (OASL) gene is an atypical member of the OAS(More)
