Transcriptional activator. Binds to the interferon- stimulated response element (ISRE) of the MHC class I promoter. Binds the immunoglobulin lambda light chain enhancer, together with PU.1. Probably plays a role in ISRE-targeted signal transduction mechanisms specific to lymphoid cells. Interacts with SPIB and DEF6. Not induced by interferons. Lymphoid cells. Belongs to the IRF family. 2 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
