Gene Description IFIT1, interferon induced protein with tetratricopeptide repeats 1, is a member of the IRF-inducible gene family that plays a role in the immune defense against RNA viruses and may regulate expression of inflammatory cytokines (PMID: 30282041, PMID: 31921891). Overexpression of Ifit1 in glioblastoma has been associated with improved prognosis and increased survival (PMID: 26980050), while overexpression in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma is associated with poor prognosis (PMID: 31977029).
