Official Full Name
aryl hydrocarbon receptor interacting protein
The protein encoded by this gene is a receptor for aryl hydrocarbons and a ligand-activated transcription factor. The;encoded protein is found in the cytoplasm as part of a multiprotein complex, but upon binding of ligand is transported;to the nucleus. This protein can regulate the expression of many xenobiotic metabolizing enzymes. Also, the encoded;protein can bind specifically to and inhibit the activity of hepatitis B virus.
