The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the IRF (interferon regulatory factor) family of transcription factors characterized by an unique tryptophan pentad repeat DNA-binding domain. The IRFs are important in the regulation of interferons in response to infection by virus and in the regulation of interferon-inducible genes. This family member is lymphocyte specific and negatively regulates Toll-like-receptor (TLR) signaling that is central to the activation of innate and adaptive immune systems. A chromosomal translocation involving this gene and the IgH locus t(6;14)(p25;q32) may be a cause of multiple myeloma. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene.
