GeneCards Summary for IFITM2 Gene

IFITM2 (Interferon Induced Transmembrane Protein 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with IFITM2 include west nile virus and stomatitis. Among its related pathways are Immune System and Interferon gamma signaling. An important paralog of this gene is IFITM1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for IFITM2 Gene

  • IFN-induced antiviral protein which inhibits the entry of viruses to the host cell cytoplasm, permitting endocytosis, but preventing subsequent viral fusion and release of viral contents into the cytosol. Active against multiple viruses, including influenza A virus, SARS coronavirus (SARS-CoV), Marburg virus (MARV), Ebola virus (EBOV), Dengue virus (DNV), West Nile virus (WNV), human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) and vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV). Can inhibit: influenza virus hemagglutinin protein-mediated viral entry, MARV and EBOV GP1,2-mediated viral entry, SARS-CoV S protein-mediated viral entry and VSV G protein-mediated viral entry. Induces cell cycle arrest and mediates apoptosis by caspase activation and in p53-independent manner.
