While IFN has multiple immunomodulatory functions, the induction of ISGs is thought to be fundamental to controlling HCV infection. The ISGs responsible for the anti-HCV effect are not well understood, although the roles of a number of ISGs are emerging as well as anti-HCV effectors. In this chapter the events leading to the induction of type 1 IFN following HCV infection and IFN action are outlined. Furthermore, the current state of known ISGs to control HCV replication, as well as their ability as a predictor of IFN therapeutic outcome, will also be discussed.

As with cellular mRNA, the HCV RNA genome is not capped and hence the HCV RNA contains a 5 ppp to facilitate engagement with RIG-I. The 3 non-coding region of HCV contains the primary HCV PAMP that activates RIG-I signaling. The HCV 3 NCR contains a variable region containing ds stem-loop structures, a poly U-rich region that is single stranded, and a conserved “X” region that also contains significant secondary structure. It was predicted that the ds regions of the 3 NCR would facilitate RIG-I activation, however, this was not the case, with the polyU/UC region found to be a potent activator of RIG-I [10].
