Summary
[Homo sapiens] IRF2 is a transcriptional repressor that functions by competing with the transcriptional activator IRF1 and has also been shown to functions as a transcriptional activator for several genes. IRF2 transcriptional activity is regulated by sumoylation whereby covalent modification of IRF2 by SUMO1 results in enhanced transcriptional repression activity on IRF1.
Entrez Gene
Summary This gene does not have any Entrez summary - the following is the summary from its human ortholog ENSG00000168310:
IRF2 encodes interferon regulatory factor 2, a member of the interferon regulatory transcription factor (IRF) family. IRF2 competitively inhibits the IRF1-mediated transcriptional activation of interferons alpha and beta, and presumably other genes that employ IRF1 for transcription activation. However, IRF2 also functions as a transcriptional activator of histone H4. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
