This gene has been found to be recurrently rearranged in chromosomal translocation with two other genes - baculoviral IAP repeat-containing protein 3 (also known as apoptosis inhibitor 2) and immunoglobulin heavy chain locus - in mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphomas. The protein encoded by this gene may play a role in NF-kappaB activation. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described for this gene.

GeneCards Summary for MALT1 Gene
MALT1 (MALT1 Paracaspase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MALT1 include Immunodeficiency 12 and Lymphoma, Mucosa-Associated Lymphoid Type. Among its related pathways are CLEC7A (Dectin-1) signaling and Innate Immune System. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include ubiquitin-protein transferase activity and peptidase activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MALT1 Gene
Enhances BCL10-induced activation of NF-kappa-B. Involved in nuclear export of BCL10. Binds to TRAF6, inducing TRAF6 oligomerization and activation of its ligase activity. Has ubiquitin ligase activity. MALT1-dependent BCL10 cleavage plays an important role in T-cell antigen receptor-induced integrin adhesion.
Aminopeptidases catalyze the removal of amino acids from the amino terminus of proteins and peptides. They express different substrate specificities - for example, leucyl aminopeptidase preferentially cleaves leucine residues.
