IFNγ is a cytokine that plays a key role in host defense against intracellular pathogens. In addition to the canonical JAK-STAT1 pathway, IFNγ also activates an IKKß-mediated noncanonical signaling pathway that is essential for induction of a subset of downstream effector genes. The molecular mechanisms and functional significance of this IFNγ-triggered noncanonical pathway remains enigmatic. Here, we identified sorting nexin 8 (SNX8) as an important component of the IFNγ-triggered noncanonical signaling pathway. SNX8-deficiency impaired IFNγ-triggered induction of a subset of downstream genes. Snx8-/- mice infected with Listeria monocytogenes exhibited lower serum cytokine levels and higher bacterial loads in the livers and spleens, resulting in higher lethality. Mechanistically, SNX8 interacted with JAK1 and IKKß and promoted their association. IFNγ induced JAK1-mediated phosphorylation of SNX8 at Tyr95 and Tyr126, which promoted the recruitment of IKKß to the JAK1 complex. SNX8-deficiency impaired IFNγ-induced oligomerization and autophosphorylation of IKKß at Ser177, which is critical for selective induction of downstream genes. Our findings suggest that SNX8 acts as a link for IFNγ-triggered noncanonical signaling pathway, which induces a subset of downstream genes important for host defense against L. monocytogenes infection.
