26636761 MicroRNA-122 Inhibits the Production of Inflammatory Cytokines by Targeting the PKR Activator PACT in Human Hepatic Stellate Cells.
26608320 These findings support a model in which a measles virus defective interfering RNA is sensed by PACT and RIG-I to initiate an innate antiviral response via activation of interferon-beta production.
26454002 The interferon-induced protein kinase(PACT) partially rescued defects of interferon-beta1 and chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 5/RANTES (regulated on activation normal T cell expressed and secreted) induction in DDX3-knockdown HEK293 cells.
26355092 this study demonstrates for the first time that OV20.0 of Orf virus is also able to interact with the dsRNA binding domain of PACT and that the presence of dsRNA strengthened the interaction of these two molecules.
26231208 the affinity of PACT-PACT and PACT-PKR interactions is enhanced in dystonia patient lymphoblasts, thereby leading to intensified PKR activation and enhanced cellular death.
25142429 This stuidy provides the first independent replication of the DYT16 locus at 2q31.2 and strongly confirms the causal contribution of the PRKRA gene to DYT16. Our data suggest worldwide involvement of PRKRA in dystonia.
24939934 PKR is activated in uninfected cells, specifically during mitosis, by binding to dsRNAs formed by inverted Alu repeats (IRAlus).
24899174 NS1 prevents PACT from interacting with an essential component of the virus.
24522921 MERS-CoV 4a protein interacted with PACT in an RNA-dependent manner but not with RIG-I or MDA5.
24067967 Herpes simplex virus 1 Us11 suppresses host interferon beta1 production through the inhibition of the PACT.
