(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID3550
Official gene symbolIK
Full nameIK cytokine, down-regulator of HLA II
Gene summaryThe protein encoded by this gene was identified by its RED repeat, a stretch of repeated arginine, glutamic acid and aspartic acid residues. The protein localizes to discrete dots within the nucleus, excluding the nucleolus. Its function is unknown. This gene maps to chromosome 5; however, a pseudogene may exist on chromosome 2.
