Detailed entry information

Protein Information (annotations from UniProt)

Database IDHIV0001426
UniProt IDQ12905
Primary gene name(s)ILF2
Synonym gene name(s)NF45
Protein nameInterleukin enhancer-binding factor 2
Protein functionAppears to function predominantly as a heterodimeric complex with ILF3. This complex may regulate transcription of the IL2 gene during T-cell activation. It can also promote the formation of stable DNA-dependent protein kinase holoenzyme complexes on DNA. Essential for the efficient reshuttling of ILF3, isoform 1 and isoform 2 into the nucleus. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:10574923, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11739746, ECO:0000269|PubMed:21123651, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9442054}.
Subcellular locationNucleus, nucleolus. Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Note=Localized in cytoplasmic mRNP granules containing untranslated mRNAs.
