interferon induced transmembrane protein 3


ENTREZID: 10410 | Type: Protein Coding | Map: 11p15.5

OMIM: 616069 | 211980 | 131550


Summary Entrez
The protein encoded by this gene is an interferon-induced membrane protein that helps confer immunity to influenza A H1N1 virus, West Nile virus, and dengue virus. Two transcript variants, only one of them protein-coding, have been found for this gene. Another variant encoding an N-terminally truncated isoform has been reported, but the full-length nature of this variant has not been determined. [provided by RefSeq, May 2012]
