pUNO1 bearing the human STING gene, V155M variant
SAVI-associated V155M hSTING gene
STING (stimulator of interferon genes; also known as TMEM173, MITA, MPYS, and ERIS) is essential for the interferon (IFN) response to microbial or self DNA, and acts as a direct sensor of cyclic dinucleotides (CDNs).
Several variants of STING have been described in the human population. The M155 (V155M) variant results in a gain-of- function mutation with the constitutive activation of STING and an upregulation of IFN production .
This mutation is associated with a chronic autoinflammatory disease, known as STING- associated vasculopathy with onset in infancy (SAVI) .
