In mammals the IRF gene family consists of nine members: IRF-1, IRF2, IRF-3, IRF-4, IRF-5, IRF-6, IRF-7, IRF-8/ICSBP, and IRF-9. Their respective IRF proteins share significant homologies at the N-terminal 115 amino acids where they share a conserved tryptophan pentad repeat DNA-binding domain [20].
