Function
Interferon-induced antiviral RNA-binding protein that specifically binds single-stranded RNA bearing a 5'-triphosphate group (PPP-RNA), thereby acting as a sensor of viral single-stranded RNAs and inhibiting expression of viral messenger RNAs. Single-stranded PPP-RNAs, which lack 2'-O-methylation of the 5' cap and bear a 5'-triphosphate group instead, are specific from viruses, providing a molecular signature to distinguish between self and non-self mRNAs by the host during viral infection. Directly binds PPP-RNA in a non-sequence-specific manner. Viruses evolved several ways to evade this restriction system such as encoding their own 2'-O-methylase for their mRNAs or by stealing host cap containing the 2'-O-methylation (cap snatching mechanism). Exhibits antiviral activity against several viruses including human papilloma and hepatitis C viruses. (data source: UniProt  )
Subunit structure
Component of an interferon-dependent multiprotein complex, at least composed of IFIT1, IFIT2 and IFIT3. Interacts (via TPR repeats 4-7) with EEF1A1 (By similarity). Interacts with EIF3C (By similarity). Interacts with IFIT2 and IFIT3. Interacts (via TPR repeats 1-4) with RPL15. Interacts with TMEM173/MITA and disrupts its interaction with MAVS or TBK1. Interacts with EIF3E. Interacts (via TPR repeat 2) with E1 proteins of HPV types 11, 18 and 3 and this interaction blocks E1 helicase activity and viral replication. (data source: UniProt  )
Domain
RNA recognition is mediated by a convoluted intramolecular fold of the TPR repeats (TPR eddy), which scaffolds unique additional helices that form an RNA binding cleft. (data source: UniProt  )

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in red indicates combined ranges of Homology Models from SBKB   and the Protein Model Portal
