Total lysates (15 µg protein) from Jurkat (lane 1) and Jurkat treated with 100 ng/mL recombinant human IFN-α cells for 16h (lane 2) were resolved by electrophoresis (4-12% Bis-Tris gel), transferred to nitrocellulose, and probed with 1:2500 diluted (0.2 µg/mL) purified anti-IRF7 antibody (upper). Proteins were visualized using an HRP goat anti-mouse-IgG secondary antibody (Cat. No. 405306) or HRP Donkey anti-rabbit IgG Antibody (Cat. No. 406401) for GAPDH and chemiluminescence detection. GAPDH (poly6314, Cat. No. 631401) antibody was used as a loading control (lower). Lane M: MW ladder.

Description

IRF-7 is a member of the interferon regulatory transcription factor family that plays key regulatory roles in innate immunity. Upon virus infection, IRF-7 forms a complex with MyD88 and TRAF6 when stimulated by toll-like receptors TLR7, TLR8, and TLR9, which in turn results in nuclear translocation and induction of interferon gene expression. IRF-7 gene expression is upregulated by the stimulation of interferon through the Jak-STAT signaling pathway, which forms a positive feedback loop. The protein level of IRF-7 after activation is then downregulated by the ubiquitin-proteasome system to avoid excessive production of interferons that may cause damage to the host. Virus induced type I interferon expression was completely abrogated in IRF-7 knockout mice, suggesting that IRF-7 is critical for interferon mediated host defense during virus infection.
