• Official Full Name
  • absent in melanoma 2
  • Background
  • AIM2 (absent in melanoma 2) is an interferon-inducible protein containing an amino-terminal pyrin domain and carboxy-terminal HIN-200 domain that functions in innate immunity and tumor progression. Expression of AIM2 can inhibit cell growth and tumor form
