Molecular 'on/off switch' controls immune defenses against viruses

...nerate an immune response. Once the virus has been cleared out, the LGP2 protein turns off the RIG-I signals. This interaction between RIG-I and LGP2 is vital for properly regulating immunity, but viruses such as hepatitis C can disrupt the normal process to shut down immune defenses early, the research t...
