|Function||Transcriptional activator. Binds to the interferon- stimulated response element (ISRE) of the MHC class I promoter. Binds the immunoglobulin lambda light chain enhancer, together with PU.1. Probably plays a role in ISRE-targeted signal transduction mechanisms specific to lymphoid cells. Involved in CD8(+) dendritic cell differentiation by forming a complex with the BATF-JUNB heterodimer in immune cells, leading to recognition of AICE sequence (5'-TGAnTCA/GAAA-3'), an immune-specific regulatory element, followed by cooperative binding of BATF and IRF4 and activation of genes (By similarity).|
|Tissue Location||Lymphoid cells.|

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-bindingdomain. The IRFs are important in the regulation of interferons inresponse to infection by virus, and in the regulation ofinterferon-inducible genes. This family member is lymphocytespecific and negatively regulates Toll-like-receptor (TLR)signaling that is central to the activation of innate and adaptiveimmune systems. A chromosomal translocation involving this gene andthe IgH locus, t(6;14)(p25;q32), may be a cause of multiplemyeloma. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been foundfor this gene.
