This gene encodes a protein that acts as a repressor of beta-interferon gene expression. The protein binds specifically;to the PRDI (positive regulatory domain I element) of the beta-IFN gene promoter. Transcription of this gene increases;upon virus induction. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants that encode different isoforms have been reported.
