In influenza virus infection, type I interferons (IFN [alpha] and [beta]) and type III interferons (IFN-[lambda]1 to IFN- [lambda]3) contribute to innate antiviral responses through IFNstimulated antiviral molecules, such as myxovirus resistance gene A (MxA), RNA-dependent protein kinase (PKR), and o ligo adenylate synthetase (OAS) [18-20].
For instance, myxovirus resistance 2 (MX2), a novel innate immunity restriction factor with important roles in defensing virus infection, had higher expression in the DPL piglets than the Landrace piglets (1.56-fold).
Dr Plemper's research focuses on clinically significant members of the myxovirus families such as influenza virus and RSV.
Two candidate genes myxovirus resistance 1 (MX1) and myxovirus resistance 2 (MX2) were found nearby the significant QTL affecting BF in Berkshire on SSC13.
