a(CHEBI:"DNA polyanion") increases act(p(HGNC:IFI16)) View Subject | View Object

RIG-I is widely known as a PRR that senses RNA and that signals via mitochondrial antiviral signalling protein (MAVS) to induce an interferon (IFN) response2, and IFI16 has been suggested to be a DNA sensor that signals via the protein STING (stimulator of IFN genes; also known as TMEM173) to generate an IFN response23.

Interferon signaling subgraph

a(CHEBI:"LPS with O-antigen") increases bp(GO:"TRIF-dependent toll-like receptor 4 signaling pathway") View Subject | View Object

One checkpoint is that bacterial mRNA from live bacteria (also known as vita-PAMPs)44 activates NLRP3; the other checkpoint is that TLR4- and TRIF (TIR domain-containing adaptor protein inducing IFNβ)-dependent signalling — which is triggered by bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS) — mediate the secretion of type I IFNs, inducing pro-caspase 11 expression and activation by triggering the IFNα/β receptor (IFNAR) (FIG. 1).
