GeneCards Summary for IFI27 Gene
IFI27 (Interferon Alpha Inducible Protein 27) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with IFI27 include Hepatitis C Virus and Oral Leukoplakia. Among its related pathways are Innate Immune System and Interferon gamma signaling. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include RNA polymerase II activating transcription factor binding and lamin binding. An important paralog of this gene is IFI27L2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for IFI27 Gene
Probable adapter protein involved in different biological processes (PubMed:22427340, PubMed:27194766). Part of the signaling pathways that lead to apoptosis (PubMed:18330707, PubMed:27673746, PubMed:24970806). Involved in type-I interferon-induced apoptosis characterized by a rapid and robust release of cytochrome C from the mitochondria and activation of BAX and caspases 2, 3, 6, 8 and 9 (PubMed:18330707, PubMed:27673746). Also functions in TNFSF10-induced apoptosis (PubMed:24970806). May also have a function in the nucleus, where it may be involved in the interferon-induced negative regulation of the transcriptional activity of NR4A1, NR4A2 and NR4A3 through the enhancement of XPO1-mediated nuclear export of these nuclear receptors (PubMed:22427340). May thereby play a role in the vascular response to injury (By similarity). In the innate immune response, has an antiviral activity towards hepatitis C virus/HCV (PubMed:27194766, PubMed:27777077). May prevent the replication of the virus by recruiting both the hepatitis C virus non-structural protein 5A/NS5A and the ubiquitination machinery via SKP2, promoting the ubiquitin-mediated proteasomal degradation of NS5A (PubMed:27194766, PubMed:27777077).
