26896692 showed that silencing IFN-lambda1 in T/T cell line reduced basal IFN-stimulated gene expression and improved antiviral activity
26718740 activation of TLR7 upregulated the expression levels of IFN-lambda1 and MMP-9 were increased by ~3 fold, whereas other genes (p53, PTEN, TIMP-1) were upregulated by ~2 fold, and VEGF was marginally upregulated after 10 min.
26420479 IL-29 directly induces RANKL expression in rheumatoid arthritis-fibroblasts like synoviocytes via MAPK signaling pathway.
26353965 NS of severe fever with thrombocytopenia syndrome virus inhibited the activity of IFN-alpha1, IFN-beta, IFN-lambda1 and IFN-lambda2 through inhibition of STAT1 phosphorylation.
26336095 Data suggest that naturally occurring iDVGs (immunostimulatory defective viral genomes) trigger robust host antiviral/innate immunity responses including/requiring up-regulation of IFNL1 and IFNB1 (interferon beta 1) in respiratory mucosa.
26278073 IL-29 can aggravate LPS/TLR4-mediated inflammation.
26194286 Studies indicate that the type III interferons (IFNs) or IFN-lambdas consists of four members: IFN-lambda1 (IL-29), IFN-lambda2 (IL28A), IFN-lambda3 (IL-28B) and IFN-lambda4.
26057401 IFN-lambda-1 and interferon-gamma levels in systemic sclerosis patients were significantly higher than those in healthy individuals.
25936570 this study failed to prove any significant association between polymorphisms in IL29 gene rs30461 or IL10 gene (-1082, -819 and -592) or cytokine haplotype and either response to therapy or severity of HCV infection in children.
25784275 Severity of rhinovirus-induced asthma symptoms is inversely related to resolution IFNL1 expression.
