A number of cytosolic DNA receptors are reported, including cyclic guanosine monophosphate-adenosine monophosphate (cGAMP) synthase (cGAS) [7], DNA-dependent activator of IFN regulatory factor [8], DDX41 [9], and IFN-[gamma]-inducible protein (IFI16) [10]; however, only cGAS has been validated to recognize DNA ligand in various systems both in vitro and in vivo [11].
Interestingly, LGP2 sentinel function seems to be shared by many other DExD/H box RNA helicases such as DDX3, DHX9, DHX29, and DDX41, which bind directly to nucleic acids and interact with either RIG-I or MAVS to activate the pathway (see [60, 61]).
