Type I interferons, typically secreted during viral infection, induce Irg1 expression in macrophages and subsequent itaconate production .
Lampropoulou et al., "Irg1 expression in myeloid cells prevents immunopathology during M.
It is worth noting that a number of upregulated genes in PMNs phagocytizing iRBCs including BATF2, CISH, FCGR1A, SOCS3, CXCL10, HAS1, IRG1
, IL1A, ELN, and CTSL are known to be involved in various inflammatory diseases .
