Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) is a single-stranded positive-sense RNA virus, and the current strategies for controlling PRRSV are limited. Interferon gamma-inducible protein 16 (IFI16) has been reported to have a broader role in the regulation of the type I interferons (IFNs) response to RNA and DNA viruses. However, the function of IFI16 in PRRSV infection is unclear. Here, we revealed that IFI16 acts as a novel antiviral protein against PRRSV-2. IFI16 could be induced by interferon-beta (IFN-β). Overexpression of IFI16 could significantly suppress PRRSV-2 replication, and silencing the expression of endogenous IFI16 by small interfering RNAs led to the promotion of PRRSV-2 replication in MARC-145 cells. Additionally, IFI16 could promote mitochondrial antiviral signaling protein (MAVS)-mediated production of type I interferon and interact with MAVS. More importantly, IFI16 exerted anti-PRRSV effects in a MAVS-dependent manner. In conclusion, our data demonstrated that IFI16 has an inhibitory effect on PRRSV-2, and these findings contribute to understanding the role of cellular proteins in regulating PRRSV replication and may have implications for the future antiviral strategies.
