Summaries for NLRP7 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NLRP7 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the NACHT, leucine rich repeat, and PYD containing (NLRP) protein family. It has an N-terminal pyrin domain, followed by a NACHT domain, a NACHT-associated domain (NAD), and a C-terminal leucine-rich repeat (LRR) region. NLRP proteins are implicated in the activation of proinflammatory caspases through multiprotein complexes called inflammasomes. This gene may act as a feedback regulator of caspase-1-dependent interleukin 1-beta secretion. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms.

GeneCards Summary for NLRP7 Gene

NLRP7 (NLR Family Pyrin Domain Containing 7) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NLRP7 include Hydatidiform Mole, Recurrent, 1 and Partial Hydatidiform Mole. Among its related pathways are Toll-like Receptor Signaling Pathway and Nucleotide-binding Oligomerization Domain (NOD) pathway. An important paralog of this gene is NLRP2.
