Polymorphisms in the Interferon regulatory factor (IRF)-5, IRF7, and IRF8 are associated with SSc, Similarly, polymorphism of Signal Transducer and Activator of Transcription (STAT)-4, has been established as a genetic risk factor of SSc.

The cytoplasmic helicase proteins RIG-I (retinoic-acid-inducible protein I) and MDA5 (melanoma-differentiation-associated gene 5) have been identified as viral dsRNA detectors and the adaptor IPS-1 (IFN-beta promoter stimulator-1) interacts with RIG-I and MDA5 to facilitate type-I IFN production mediated interferon regulatory factor 3 (IRF3) and 7 (IRF7).

Viperin interacted with the signal mediators IRAK1 and TRAF6 to recruit them to the lipid bodies and facilitated K63-linked ubiquitination of IRAK1 to induce the nuclear translocation of transcription factor IRF7. Thus, besides direct inhibition of viral replication, this finding reveals that Viperin mediates its antiviral function via the regulation of the TLR7 and TLR9-IRAK1 signaling axis in pDCs.
