Human Gene IRF2BP2 (uc001hwg.3) Description and Page Index
  Description: Homo sapiens interferon regulatory factor 2 binding protein 2 (IRF2BP2), transcript variant 1, mRNA.
RefSeq Summary (NM_182972): This gene encodes an interferon regulatory factor-2 (IRF2) binding protein that interacts with the C-terminal transcriptional repression domain of IRF2. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008].

DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Interferon regulatory factor 2-binding protein 2; Short=IRF-2-binding protein 2; Short=IRF-2BP2;
FUNCTION: Acts as a transcriptional corepressor in a IRF2- dependent manner; this repression is not mediated by histone deacetylase activities. Represses the NFAT1-dependent transactivation of NFAT-responsive promoters. Acts as a coactivator of VEGFA expression in cardiac and skeletal muscle.
SUBUNIT: Interacts with IRF2. Part of a corepressor complex containing IRF2 and IRF2BP1. Interacts with VGLL4.
DOMAIN: The C-terminal RING-type zinc finger domain is sufficient for interaction with IRF2.
PTM: Phosphorylation at Ser-360 is required for nuclear targeting.
SIMILARITY: Belongs to the IRF2BP family.
SIMILARITY: Contains 1 RING-type zinc finger.

    Using a 100K genome-wide scan, we have generated a set of putative associations for common sequence variants and lipid phenotypes. Validation of selected hypotheses in additional samples did not identify any new loci underlying variability in blood lipids. Lack of replication may be due to inadequate statistical power to detect modest quantitative trait locus effects (i.e., <1% of trait variance explained) or reduced genomic coverage of the 100K array. GWAS in FHS using a denser genome-wide genotyping platform and a better-powered replication strategy may identify novel loci underlying blood lipids.

-  Orthologous Genes in Other Species
  Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
