Zhao, Y, Liang, L, Fan, Y, Sun, S, An, L, Shi, Z, Cheng, J, Jia, W, Sun, W, Mori-Akiyama, Y, Zhang, H, Fu, S and Yang, J (2012) PPM1B negatively regulates antiviral response via dephosphorylating TBK1. Cell. Signal. 24:2197-204


The production of type I interferon must be tightly regulated and aberrant production of type I interferon is harmful or even fatal to the host. TBK1 phosphorylation at Ser172 plays an essential role in TBK1-mediated antiviral response. However, how TBK1 activity is negatively regulated remains poorly understood. Using a functional genomics approach, we have identified PPM1B as a TBK1 phosphatase. PPM1B dephosphorylates TBK1 in vivo and in vitro. PPM1B wild-type but not its phosphatase-deficient R179G mutant inhibits TBK1-mediated antiviral response and facilitates VSV replication in the cells. Viral infection induces association of PPM1B with TBK1 in a transient fashion in the cells. Conversely, suppression of PPM1B expression enhances virus-induced IRF3 phosphorylation and IFNβ production. Our study identifies a previously unrecognized role for PPM1B in the negative regulation of antiviral response by acting as a TBK1 phosphatase.
