[Retinoic acid-inducible gene-I-like receptors and RNA virus recognition--a review].

Retinoic acid-inducible gene I (RIG-I)-like receptors (RLRs) have recently been identified as cytoplasmic sensors for RNA viruses. The RLR signaling cascades induce the production of type I interferons and pro-inflammatory cytokines, which are rigorously regulated by the host. On other side, RNA viruses have evolved strategies to evade RLR signaling. In… CONTINUE READING
