A family of transcription factors that share an N-terminal helix-turn-helix motif and bind interferon-inducible promoters to control gene expression. IRF proteins bind specific DNA sequences such as interferon-stimulated response elements, interferon regulatory elements, and the interferon consensus sequence.
