Surprisingly, patients with a defect of IRAK-4, a critical kinase downstream from TLRs, are resistant to common viruses. We show here that IFN-α/β and -λ induction via TLR-7, TLR-8, and TLR-9 was abolished in IRAK-4-deficient blood cells. In contrast, IFN-α/β and -λ were induced normally by TLR-3 and TLR-4 agonists. Moreover, IFN-β and -λ were normally induced by TLR-3 agonists and viruses in IRAK-4-deficient fibroblasts. We further show that IFN-α/β and -λ production in response to 9 of 11 viruses tested was normal or weakly affected in IRAK-4-deficient blood cells. Thus, IRAK-4-deficient patients may control viral infections by TLR-3- and TLR-4-dependent and/or TLR-independent production of IFNs. The TLR-7-, TLR-8-, and TLR-9-dependent induction of IFN-α/β and -λ is strictly IRAK-4 dependent and paradoxically redundant for protective immunity to most viruses in humans.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/48640||ISSN:||1074-7613||DOI:||10.1016/j.immuni.2005.09.016||Source:||Immunity[ISSN 1074-7613],v. 23, p. 465-478 (Noviembre 2005)|
