• Official Full Name
  • pirin (iron-binding nuclear protein)
  • Background
  • This gene encodes a member of the cupin superfamily. The encoded protein is an Fe(II)-containing nuclear protein expressed in all tissues of the body and concentrated within dot-like subnuclear structures. Interactions with nuclear factor I/CCAAT box transcription factor as well as B cell lymphoma 3-encoded oncoprotein suggest the encoded protein may act as a transcriptional cofactor and be involved in the regulation of DNA transcription and replication. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described.

Protein Function

PIR has several biochemical functions, for example, metal ion binding, protein binding, quercetin 2,3-dioxygenase activity. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by PIR itself. We selected most functions PIR had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with PIR. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
