Gene: Irf2 (interferon regulatory factor 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Irf2
Name: interferon regulatory factor 2
Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in defense response to virus and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to localize to the cytosol; focal adhesion; and nucleoplasm. Is expressed in eye; genitourinary system; heart; and limb. Orthologous to human IRF2 (interferon regulatory factor 2); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine; 4,4'-diaminodiphenylmethane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
