Type 1 interferons (IFNα/β) mediate immunologic host resistance to numerous viral infections including herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1). The pathways responsible for maintenance of IFNα/β signaling during the innate immune response to acute HSV-1 infection in the cornea are incompletely understood. Using a murine ocular infection model, we hypothesized that the stimulator of IFN genes (STING) mediates host resistance to HSV-1 infection in the external ocular surface and preserves the structural integrity of this immune privileged mucosal site. Viral pathogenesis, tissue pathology, and host immune responses during ocular HSV-1 infection were evaluated and char...
