The innate immune system detects viral nucleic acids and induces type I interferon (IFN) responses. The RNA- and DNA-sensing pathways converge on the protein kinase TANK-binding kinase 1 (TBK1) and the transcription factor IFN-regulatory factor 3 (IRF3). Activation of the IFN signaling pathway is known to trigger the redistribution of key signaling molecules to punctate perinuclear structures, but the mediators of this spatiotemporal regulation have yet to be defined. Here we identify butyrophilin 3A1 (BTN3A1) as a positive regulator of nucleic acid-mediated type I IFN signaling. Depletion of BTN3A1 inhibits the cytoplasmic nucleic acid- or virus-triggered activation of IFN-β production. In the resting state, BTN3A1 is constitutively associated with TBK1. Stimulation with nucleic acids induces the redistribution of the BTN3A1–TBK1 complex to the perinuclear region, where BTN3A1 mediates the interaction between TBK1 and IRF3, leading to the phosphorylation of IRF3. Furthermore, we show that microtubule-associated protein 4 (MAP4) controls the dynein-dependent transport of BTN3A1 in response to nucleic acid stimulation, thereby identifying MAP4 as an upstream regulator of BTN3A1. Thus, the depletion of either MAP4 or BTN3A1 impairs cytosolic DNA- or RNA-mediated type I IFN responses. Our findings demonstrate a critical role for MAP4 and BTN3A1 in the spatiotemporal regulation of TBK1, a central player in the intracellular nucleic acid-sensing pathways involved in antiviral signaling.

STING is an ER-associated membrane protein that is critical for innate immune sensing of pathogens. STING-mediated activation of the IFN-I pathway through the TBK1/IRF3 signaling axis involves both cyclic-dinucleotide binding and its translocation from the ER to vesicles. However, how these events are coordinated, and the exact mechanism of STING activation, remain poorly understood. Here, we found that the Shigella effector protein IpaJ potently inhibits STING signaling by blocking its transloc...

INTRODUCTION Sensing of pathogenic microbes and tissue damage by the innate immune system triggers immune cells to secrete cytokines that promote host defense. Viral RNA, cytosolic DNA, and the bacterial cell wall component lipopolysaccharide activate signaling cascades through a number of pattern recognition receptor (PRR)–adaptor protein pairs, including RIG-I–MAVS, cGAS-STING, and TLR3/4-TRIF (TLR3/4, Toll-like receptors 3 and 4). Activation of these signaling modules results in the productio...

Microtubule (MT)-based transport of organelles driven by the opposing MT mo- tors kinesins and dynein is tightly regulated in cells, but the underlying molecular mechanisms remain largely unknown. Here we tested the regulation of MT transport by the ubiquitous protein MAP4 using Xenopus melanophores as an experimental system. In these cells, pig- ment granules (melanosomes) move along MTs to the cell center (aggregation) or to the pe- riphery (dispersion) by means of cytoplasmic dynein and kines...

Double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) derived from pathogen- or host-damaged cells triggers innate immune responses when exposed to cytoplasm. However, the machinery underlying the primary recognition of intracellular dsDNA is obscure. Here we show that the DNA damage sensor, meiotic recombination 11 homolog A (MRE11), serves as a cytosolic sensor for dsDNA. Cells with a mutation of MRE11 gene derived from a patient with ataxia-telangiectasia–like disorder, and cells in which Mre11 was knocked down, had d...

The presence of DNA in the cytoplasm of mammalian cells is a danger signal that triggers host immune responses such as the production of type I interferons. Cytosolic DNA induces interferons through the production of cyclic guanosine monophosphate–adenosine monophosphate (cyclic GMP-AMP, or cGAMP), which binds to and activates the adaptor protein STING. Through biochemical fractionation and quantitative mass spectrometry, we identified a cGAMP synthase (cGAS), which belongs to the nucleotidyltra...

Type I interferon (IFN) induction is a crucial anti-pathogen response mediated by innate immune stimulation. Although it has been appreciated for some time that the presence of pathogen DNA within a cell leads to a type I IFN response, it is only in the past few years that some of the key signalling proteins and DNA sensors that regulate this response have been uncovered. Here, we review the nature of these DNA sensors, which include a new family of pattern recognition receptors termed the AIM2-...

Summary: Host cells trigger signals for innate immune responses upon recognition of conserved structures in microbial pathogens. Nucleic acids, which are critical components for inheriting genetic information in all species including pathogens, are key structures sensed by the innate immune system. The corresponding receptors for foreign nucleic acids include members of Toll-like receptors, RIG-I-like receptors, and intracellular DNA sensors. While nucleic acid recognition by these receptors is ...

RNA represents a pivotal component of host–pathogen interactions. Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) infection causes extensive alteration in host RNA metabolism, but the functional relationship between the virus and cellular RNA processing remains largely unknown. Through loss-of-function screening, we show that HCMV requires multiple RNA-processing machineries for efficient viral lytic production. In particular, the cellular RNA-binding protein Roquin, whose expression is actively stimulated by HCMV...

Summary Membrane-less organelles (MLOs) are liquid-like subcellular compartments providing spatiotemporal control to biological processes. This study reveals that cellular stress leads to the incorporation of the adaptor protein SINTBAD (TBKBP1) into membrane-less, cytosolic speckles. Determination of the interactome identified >100 proteins forming constitutive and stress-inducible members of a MLO that we termed SINT-speckles.

ABSTRACTIntroduction: TANK-binding kinase 1 (TBK1) is vital for the induction of antiviral innate immune responses. Both RNA and DNA viral infection induces TBK1 activation, triggers phosphorylation of interferon regulatory factor (IRF) 3 and subsequent expression of type I interferons (IFNs; IFN-α/β). Type I IFNs can induce the expression of numerous antiviral genes called interferon-stimulated genes (ISGs) to build a remarkable antiviral state and limit viral replication. Thus, optimal TBK1 ac...

Recent findings in the immunology field have pointed out the emergent role of Butyrophilins/butyrophilin-like molecules (BTN/BTNL in human, Btn/Btnl in mouse) in the modulation of γδ T cells. As long as the field develops exponentially, new relationships between certain γδ T cell subsets, on one hand, and their BTN/BTNL counterparts mainly present on epithelial and tumor cells, on the other, are described in the scientific literature. Btnl1/Btnl6 in mice and BTNL3/BTNL8 in humans regulate the ho...

Vg9Vd2 T cells represent a major unconventional gd T cell subset located in the peripheral blood of adults in humans and several non-human primates. Lymphocytes that constitute this transitional subset can sense subtle level changes of intracellular of phosphorylated intermediates of the isoprenoid biosynthesis pathway (phosphoantigens, pAgs), such as isopentenyl-pyrophosphate, during cell stress events. This unique antigenic activation process opers in a rigourous framework that requires the ex...

Abstract (279 words) 1-5% of human blood T cells are Vγ9Vδ2 T cells whose TCR contain a TRGV9/TRGJP rearrangement and a TRDV2 comprising Vδ2-chain. They respond to phosphoantigens like isopentenyl pyrophosphate (IPP) or (E)-4-Hydroxy-3-methyl-but-2-enyl-pyrophosphate (HMBPP) in a butyrophilin 3 (BTN3)-dependent manner and may contribute to the control of mycobacterial infections. These cells were thought to be restricted to primates, but we demonstrated by analysis of genomic databases that TRGV...

Abstract γδ T cells constitute a sizeable and non-redundant fraction of the total T cell pool in all jawed vertebrates, but in contrast to conventional αβ T cells they are not restricted by classical MHC molecules. Progress in our understanding of the role of γδ T cells in the immune system has been hampered, and is being hampered, by the considerable lack of knowledge regarding the antigens γδ T cells respond to. The past few years have seen a wealth of data regarding the TCR repertoires of dis...

Small isoprenoid diphosphates, such as (E)-4-hydroxy-3-methyl-but-2-enyl diphosphate (HMBPP), are ligands of the internal domain of BTN3A1. Ligand binding in target cells promotes activation of Vγ9Vδ2 T cells. We demonstrate by small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) that HMBPP binding to the internal domain of BTN3A1 induces a conformational change in the position of the B30.2 domain relative to the juxtamembrane (JM) region. To better understand the molecular details of this conformational rearran...

ABSTRACT Microtubules (MTs) form a rapidly adaptable network of filaments that radiate throughout the cell. These dynamic arrays facilitate a wide range of cellular processes, including the capture, transport, and spatial organization of cargos and organelles, as well as changes in cell shape, polarity, and motility. Nucleating from MT-organizing centers, including but by no means limited to the centrosome, MTs undergo rapid transitions through phases of growth, pause, and catastrophe, continuou...
