Abstract

A new study shows that gain-of-function mutations in IFIH1, which encodes the cytosolic double-stranded RNA sensor MDA5, lead to upregulated type I interferon responses. Individuals with these mutations exhibit phenotypes consistent with autoimmune diseases, including Aicardi-Goutières syndrome and systemic lupus erythematosus.
