Iron Regulatory Protein 2



IREB2 Protein

IRP 2 RNA binding protein

IRP-2 RNA-binding protein

IRP2 Protein

Iron-Responsive-Element Binding Protein 2

RNA-binding protein, IRP-2

A multifunctional iron-sulfur protein that is both an iron regulatory protein and cytoplasmic form of aconitate hydratase. It binds to iron regulatory elements found on mRNAs involved in iron metabolism and regulates their translation. Its rate of degradation is increased in the presence of IRON.
