Melanoma Differentiation–Associated Gene 5 Senses Hepatitis B Virus and Activates Innate Immune Signaling to Suppress Virus Replication.

Retinoic acid–inducible gene-I (RIG-I) and melanoma differentiation–associated gene 5 (MDA5) belong to the RIG-I–like receptors family of pattern recognition receptors. Both RIG-I and MDA5 have been shown to recognize various viral RNAs, but whether they mediate hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection remains unclear.
