Target

  • Function
    Transcriptional activator. Binds to the interferon-stimulated response element (ISRE) in IFN promoters and in the Q promoter (Qp) of EBV nuclear antigen 1 (EBNA1). Functions as a molecular switch for antiviral activity. Activated by phosphorylation in response to infection. Activation leads to nuclear retention, DNA binding, and derepression of transactivation ability.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed predominantly in spleen, thymus and peripheral blood leukocytes.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the IRF family.
    Contains 1 IRF tryptophan pentad repeat DNA-binding domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    In response to a viral infection, phosphorylated on the C-terminal serine cluster. Phosphorylation, and subsequent activation is inhibited by vaccinia virus protein E3.
    TRAF6-mediated ubiquitination is required for IRF7 activation.
  • Cellular localization
    Nucleus. Cytoplasm. The phosphorylated and active form accumulates selectively in the nucleus.
