|Function||Interferon-induced antiviral RNA-binding protein that specifically binds single-stranded RNA bearing a 5'-triphosphate group (PPP-RNA), thereby acting as a sensor of viral single- stranded RNAs and inhibiting expression of viral messenger RNAs. Single-stranded PPP-RNAs, which lack 2'-O-methylation of the 5' cap and bear a 5'-triphosphate group instead, are specific from viruses, providing a molecular signature to distinguish between self and non-self mRNAs by the host during viral infection. Directly binds PPP-RNA in a non-sequence-specific manner. Viruses evolved several ways to evade this restriction system such as encoding their own 2'-O-methylase for their mRNAs or by stealing host cap containing the 2'-O-methylation (cap snatching mechanism). Exhibits antiviral activity against several viruses including human papilloma and hepatitis C viruses.|

The interferon-induced protein with tetratricopeptide repeats 1 (IFIT1) protein is a member of a family of tetratricopeptide repeat-containing proteins whose transcription is upregulated by interferons, virus infection, and molecular patterns such as dsRNA or lipopolysaccharides (1,2). These proteins have been suggested to induce anti-viral cellular activities in response to infection (2). Together with the interferon-induced transmembrane protein 1 (IFITM1), IFIT1 inhibits the replication of the Hepatitis C virus, suggesting that it may be useful in the development of therapeutic treatments (3).
