IRF3 Expressing HEK293 Cell Line (HEK293-IRF3)

Human embryonic kidney (HEK293) cells that stably express Interferon Regulatory Factor 3 (IRF-3) tagged by a Venus fluorescent protein.

Interferon regulatory factors (IRF) are proteins that regulate transcription of interferons (see regulation of gene expression). IRF3 is a key transcription factor to activate the expression of interferons. IRF3 contains several functional domains including a nuclear export signal, a DNA-binding domain, a C-terminal IRF association domain, and several regulatory phosphorylation sites. IRF3 plays an important role in the innate immunity against viral infection. IRF3 has been shown to interact with IRF7. HEK293-IRF3 was established with a stale expression of IRF3 and used in studies of the interferon induction pathway.
