Double-stranded RNA viruses are recognized in a cell type-dependent manner by the transmembrane receptor TLR3 or by the cytoplasmic RNA helicases MDA5 and RIGI (ROBO3; MIM 608630). These interactions initiate signaling pathways that differ in their initial steps but converge in the activation of the protein kinases IKKA (CHUK; MIM 600664) and IKKB (IKBKB; MIM 603258), which activate NFKB, or TBK1 and IKKE (IKBKE; MIM 605048), which activate IRF3. Activated IRF3 and NFKB induce transcription of IFNB (IFNB1; MIM 147640). For the TLR3 pathway, the intermediary molecule before the pathways converge is the cytoplasmic protein TRIF (TICAM1; MIM 607601). For RIGI, the intermediary protein is mitochondria-bound IPS1 (Sen and Sarkar, 2005).
