I don't know

Evidence Summary from Illumina curation team: Nie et al. (2017) showed that GPATCH3 is a negative regulator of the innate immune response to RNA viruses. Reduction of GPATCH3 levels using shRNA resulted in enhanced induction and transcription of SeV (ssRNA virus) downstream antiviral genes such as IFNB1, in multiple cell lines compared to controls. Similar effects were not observed in cells infected with DNA viruses, HCMV or HSV120. Coimmunoprecipitation and colocalisation experiments indicated that GPATCH3 negative regulation is mediated through a direct interaction of mitochondrial localised, MAVS (VISA). MAVS plays an established role in the innate antiviral immune responses against to RNA viruses.
