The WD motif-containing protein RACK-1 functions as a scaffold protein within the type I IFN receptor-signaling complex.

The WD repeat-containing protein receptor for activated protein kinase C (RACK)-1 has been linked to a variety of signaling systems including protein kinase C, growth factors, and IFNs. In the IFN system, RACK-1 functions as an adaptor recruiting the transcription factor STAT1 to the receptor complex. However, RACK-1 should play a broader role in type I IFN… CONTINUE READING
