Reduced expression of TNF[alpha] receptors appears to be associated with the G allele that encodes for the binding site of the interferon consensus sequence-binding protein (ICSBP, also known as IRF8 or interferon regulatory factor 8), a transcription factor that is involved in TNFRI-mediated activation of NF-[kappa]B signaling pathway 43].
IRF-8, also known as interferon consensus sequence-binding protein (ICSBP), is a 393-amino acid-long "hematopoietic" IRF [22].
