Iron Regulatory Protein 2
IRP 2 RNA binding protein
IRP-2 RNA-binding 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.
