Summary
MAFB binds to IRF3, impairing the recruitment of co-activators to IRF3 and antagonizing antiviral responses.
Entrez Gene
Summary The protein encoded by this gene is a basic leucine zipper (bZIP) transcription factor that plays an important role in the regulation of lineage-specific hematopoiesis. The encoded nuclear protein represses ETS1-mediated transcription of erythroid-specific genes in myeloid cells. This gene contains no introns. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
