Summaries for NLRP4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NLRP4 Gene

  • NALPs are cytoplasmic proteins that form a subfamily within the larger CATERPILLER protein family. Most short NALPs, such as NALP4, have an N-terminal pyrin (MEFV; MIM 608107) domain (PYD), followed by a NACHT domain, a NACHT-associated domain (NAD), and a C-terminal leucine-rich repeat (LRR) region. The long NALP, NALP1 (MIM 606636), also has a C-terminal extension containing a function to find domain (FIIND) and a caspase recruitment domain (CARD). NALPs are implicated in the activation of proinflammatory caspases (e.g., CASP1; MIM 147678) via their involvement in multiprotein complexes called inflammasomes (Tschopp et al., 2003 [PubMed 12563287]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]

GeneCards Summary for NLRP4 Gene

NLRP4 (NLR Family, Pyrin Domain Containing 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and TNF-alpha/NF-kB Signaling Pathway. An important paralog of this gene is NLRC3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NLRP4 Gene

  • May be involved in inflammation and recognition of cytosolic pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) not intercepted by membrane-bound receptors. Acts as a negative regulator of the type I interferon signaling pathway by serving as an adapter to promote DTX4-mediated ubiquitination of activated TBK1, and its subsequent degradation. Suppresses NF-kappaB induction by the cytokines TNFA and IL1B, suggesting that it operates at a point of convergence in these two cytokine signaling pathways.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:

NALP4_HUMAN :
  • Q96MN2
Domain:
  • The DAPIN/Pyrin domain is sufficient for suppression of NF-kappaB activity, it adopts a typical death domain fold, but in contrast to several NLRP family DAPIN domains it doesnt bind homotypically to the ASC adapter, which supports the observation that NLRP4 has no effect on IL1B activation
  • Contains 1 DAPIN domain.
  • Contains 1 NACHT domain.
Family:
  • Belongs to the NLRP family.
Similarity:
  • Contains 8 LRR (leucine-rich) repeats.
