Measure and Countermeasure: Type I IFN (IFN-/) Antiviral Response against West Nile Virus

Abstract

As a first line of defense after viral infection, host cells develop an intrinsic immune response to control virus dissemination and protect against serious infection. Recent experiments have shown a dominant role of the IFN/ response in protection against lethal West Nile virus (WNV) by limiting the cellular and tissue tropism of infection. This review… (More)
