Disease relevance of PYHIN1


High impact information on PYHIN1

  • Finally, we show that IFIX mediates HDM2 downregulation in an IFN-inducible system [1].
  • We identified IFIX as a new member of the hematopoietic interferon (IFN)-inducible nuclear protein with the 200-amino-acid repeat (HIN-200) family [2].
