Summaries for NLRP5 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NLRP5 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the NALP protein family. Members of the NALP protein family typically contain a NACHT domain, a NACHT-associated domain (NAD), a C-terminal leucine-rich repeat (LRR) region, and an N-terminal pyrin domain (PYD). Expression of this gene is restricted to the oocyte. A mouse gene that encodes a maternal oocyte protein, similar to this encoded protein, is required for normal early embryogenesis.

GeneCards Summary for NLRP5 Gene

NLRP5 (NLR Family Pyrin Domain Containing 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NLRP5 include Autoimmune Polyendocrine Syndrome Type 1 and Oculoectodermal Syndrome. Among its related pathways are Preimplantation Embryo. An important paralog of this gene is NLRP14.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NLRP5 Gene

  • As a member of the subcortical maternal complex (SCMC), plays an essential role for zygotes to progress beyond the first embryonic cell divisions.
