IRF-5 is a transcription factor belonging to the interferon regulatory factor family. It controls induction of type I IFN genes as well as inflammatory cytokines and chemokines through TLRs and the MyD88-TRAF6 pathway. Several genetic variations of IRF-5 have been reported as a risk factor of Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), which is caused by excess IFNα induction.Product Details

- 498 aa with predicted molecular weight of 56 kD. The protein contains a DNA binding domain (IRF tryptophan pentad repeat) and a poly-Glutamate region.
Shuttles between the nucleus and the cytoplasm.
- The transcription factor IRF-5 participates in the virus-mediated activation of interferon and regulates gene expression induced by cell growth, differentiation, and apoptosis.
- IKKα phosphorylates IRF-5 and induces formation of IRF-5 dimers. TRAF6 mediates K63-linked ubiquitination of IRF-5, required for nuclear translocation of IRF-5 and regulation of target genes. IRF-5 assemblies with CBP/p300 to initiate transcription.
