Aryl hydrocarbon receptor interacting protein (AIP) is a receptor for aryl hydrocarbons and a ligand-activated transcription factor. AIP is found in the cytoplasm as part of a multiprotein complex, but upon binding of ligand is transported to the nucleus. AIP can regulate the expression of many xenobiotic metabolizing enzymes and can bind specifically to and inhibit the activity of hepatitis B virus [taken from NCBI Entrez Gene (Gene ID: 9049)].
Alternative names for
AIP Antibody include AH receptor-interacting protein antibody, HBV X-associated protein 2 antibody, XAP-2 antibody, immunophilin homolog ARA9 antibody, XAP2 antibody.
