Innate immunity is the first layer of defense against infection in mammals and is tightly regulated. We monitored cGAS/STING signaling upon ISD90 or 2′,3′-cGAMP stimulation in EA.hy926 cells by western blotting, RT-PCR, and ELISA analyses to reveal signaling activation and IFNβ production. In addition, we also include an HSV-1 infected mouse model to further reveal procedures in analyzing cGAS/STING signaling in mice. This protocol could be applied to studies focusing on cell culture or mous…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
