Previous GeneCards Identifiers for GBP5 Gene
This gene belongs to the TRAFAC class dynamin-like GTPase superfamily. The encoded protein acts as an activator of NLRP3 inflammasome assembly and has a role in innate immunity and inflammation. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2017]

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GBP5 Gene
As an activator of NLRP3 inflammasome assembly, plays a role in innate immunity and inflammation. Promotes selective NLRP3 inflammasome assembly in response to microbial and soluble, but not crystalline, agents (PubMed:22461501). Hydrolyzes GTP, but in contrast to other family members, does not produce GMP (PubMed:20180847).
