Gene: AIRE (autoimmune regulator) Homo sapiens
Symbol: AIRE
Name: autoimmune regulator
CRRD ID: 1322440
Description: Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; identical protein binding activity; and zinc ion binding activity. Involved in central tolerance induction to self antigen and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to localize to nuclear body. Implicated in autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome and autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome type 1.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: AIRE1; APECED; APS1; APSI; autoimmune polyendocrinopathy candidiasis ectodermal dystrophy protein; autoimmune regulator (autoimmune polyendocrinopathy candidiasis ectodermal dystrophy); PGA1
