IRF2

A gene on chromosome 4q34.1-q35.1 that encodes interferon regulatory factor 2, a protein of the interferon regulatory transcription factor (IRF) family, which competitively inhibits the IRF1-mediated transcriptional activation of interferons alpha and beta, and presumably other genes whose transcription is activated by IRF1.
