Scientific Background :  Interferon-stimulated gene 15 (ISG15) encodes a ubiquitin-like protein that covalently conjugates to viral or cellular proteins to regulate the stability and function via the activation on the treatment of interferons (1). ISG15 conjugation to UBCH6 represses the activity to conjugate to ubiquitin, suggesting a link between ISG15 and ubiquitin systems (2). ISG15 is involved in the regulation of type I interferon-induced JNK signaling pathway by ISGylation of filamin B (3).
