Triggering the Interferon Antiviral Response Through an IKK-Related Pathway

Sonia Sharma,* Benjamin R. tenOever,* Nathalie Grandvaux,* Guo-Ping Zhou, Rongtuan Lin,{dagger} John Hiscott{dagger}

Abstract: Rapid induction of type I interferon expression, a central event in establishing the innate antiviral response, requires cooperative activation of numerous transcription factors. Although signaling pathways that activate the transcription factors nuclear factor {kappa}B and ATF-2/c-Jun have been well characterized, activation of the interferon regulatory factors IRF-3 and IRF-7 has remained a critical missing link in understanding interferon signaling. We report here that the I{kappa}B kinase (IKK)–related kinases IKK{epsilon} and TANK-binding kinase 1 are components of the virus-activated kinase that phosphorylate IRF-3 and IRF-7. These studies illustrate an essential role for an IKK-related kinase pathway in triggering the host antiviral response to viral infection.
