In plasmacytoid dendritic cell induction of type I IFNs critically depends on IFN regulatory factor 7 in TLR7 and 9 signaling (Honda et al 2005). IRF-7, but not IRF3, interacts with MyD88, TRAF6, and IRAKs and translocates to the nucleus upon phosphorylation (Kawai et al 2004; Uematsu et al 2005).

TLR7/8 signaling was shown to induce IRF5 activation along with IRF7 [Schoenemeyer et al 2005], while IRF8 [Tsujimura H et al 2004] and IRF1 were reported to be implicated in TLR9 signaling.
