cGAS Enzyme Has an Important Role in the STING Pathway

When free DNA is in the cytoplasm of eukaryotic cells, it can be an indication of damage or infection to the cell. This DNA triggers an immune response led by type I interferon (IFN) production. The cGAS enzyme acts as a unique sensor for double-stranded DNA. When DNA binds to cGAS it activates the enzyme producing a dinucleotide cGAMP from ATP and GTP. cGAMP created by cGAS activates STING (stimulator of interferon genes), leading to IFN immune response in the cell.

cGAS STING Pathway

Example cGAS Activity Under Initial Velocity Conditions

cGAS is activated by double-stranded DNA and requires ATP and GTP substrates for the production of cGAMP.
