About This Section

Entrez Gene summary for MEFV Gene:
This gene encodes a protein, also known as pyrin or marenostrin, that is an important modulator of innate
immunity. Mutations in this gene are associated with Mediterranean fever, a hereditary periodic fever syndrome.
(provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008)

GeneCards Summary for MEFV Gene: 
MEFV (Mediterranean fever) is a protein-coding gene. Diseases associated with MEFV include familial mediterranean fever, and psoriatic juvenile idiopathic arthritis, and among its related super-pathways are NOD1/2 Signaling Pathway and The NLRP3 inflammasome. GO annotations related to this gene include actin binding and zinc ion binding. An important paralog of this gene is RFPL1.

    Induction: In monocytes, by treatment with colchicine and IFN-alpha, and by the proinflammatory cytokines
    IFNG/IFN-gamma, TNF and bacterial lipopolysaccharides (LPS). Repressed in monocytes by the antiinflammatory
    cytokines IL10/interleukin-10, TGFB1 and IL4/interleukin-4. In neutrophils, colchicine, TNF, bacterial
    lipopolysaccharides (LPS), IL10/interleukin-10, INF-alpha and IL4/interleukin-4 have no effect on expression.
    IFNG/IFN-gamma increases expression in neutrophils

  • Familial Mediterranean fever, autosomal recessive (ARFMF) [MIM:249100]: A hereditary periodic fever
    syndrome characterized by recurrent episodic fever, serosal inflammation and pain in the abdomen, chest or
    joints. It is frequently complicated by reactive amyloidosis, which leads to renal failure and can be
    prophylactically treated with colchicine. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented
    in this entry
  • Familial Mediterranean fever, autosomal dominant (ADFMF) [MIM:134610]: A hereditary periodic fever
    syndrome characterized by periodic fever, serosal inflammation and pain in the abdomen, chest or joints as seen
    also in the autosomal recessive form of the disease. It is associated with reactive renal amyloidosis and
    characterized by colchicine unresponsiveness. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene
