IFIT1


interferon induced protein with tetratricopeptide repeats 1


ENTREZID: 3434 | Type: Protein Coding | Map: 10q23.31

OMIM: 610468


Summary Entrez
This gene encodes a protein containing tetratricopeptide repeats that was originally identified as induced upon treatment with interferon. The encoded protein may inhibit viral replication and translational initiation. This gene is located in a cluster on chromosome 10 with five other closely related genes. There is a pseudogene for this gene on chromosome 13. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2012]
