Gene information for IRF1 (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID3659
Official gene symbolIRF1
Full nameinterferon regulatory factor 1
Gene summaryIRF1 encodes interferon regulatory factor 1, a member of the interferon regulatory transcription factor (IRF) family. IRF1 serves as an activator of interferons alpha and beta transcription, and in mouse it has been shown to be required for double-stranded RNA induction of these genes. IRF1 also functions as a transcription activator of genes induced by interferons alpha, beta, and gamma. Further, IRF1 has been shown to play roles in regulating apoptosis and tumor-suppressoion.
