Data class Domain
Predictors PROSITE; PS51507; IRF_2
Name IRF tryptophan pentad repeat DNA-binding domain
Function The IRF tryptophan pentad repeat DNA-binding domain has an alpha/ beta architecture comprising a cluster of three alpha-helices (alpha1-alpha3) flanked on one side by a mixed four-stranded beta-sheet (beta1-beta4). It forms a helix-turn-helix motif that binds to ISRE consensus sequences found in target promoters.
