Abstract

The capacity of host cells to detect and restrict an infecting virus rests on an array of cell-autonomous antiviral effectors and innate immune receptors that can trigger inflammatory processes at tissue and organismal levels. Dynamic changes in protein abundance, subcellular localisation, post-translational modifications and interactions with other biomolecules govern these processes. Proteomics is therefore an ideal experimental tool to discover novel mechanisms of host antiviral immunity. Additional information can be gleaned both about host and virus by systematic analysis of viral immune evasion strategies. In this review, we summarise recent advances in proteomic technologies and their application to antiviral innate immunity.
