Alternate Names: Interferon-Induced Protein With Tetratricopeptide Repeats -2; IFIT2, IFIT, Interferon
Induced 54 kDA protein, IFI54, interferon alpha inducible protein, IFIT-2, p54, ISG54
Description: IFIT-2 is an Interferon-induced antiviral RNA-binding protein that specifically binds single-stranded RNA bearing a 5'-triphosphate group (PPP-RNA), thereby acting as a sensor of viral single-stranded RNAs and inhibiting expression of viral messenger RNAs. Single-stranded PPP-RNAs, which lack 2'-O-methylation of the 5' cap and bear
a 5'-triphosphate group instead, are specific from viruses, providing a molecular signature to distinguish between self and non-self mRNAs by the host during viral infection. Directly binds PPP-RNA in a non-sequence-specific manner. Exhibits antiviral activity against several viruses including human papilloma and hepatitis C viruses
