|Synonyms||C1orf7, CIAS1, NALP3, PYPAF1|
|Function||May function as an inducer of apoptosis. Interacts selectively with ASC and this complex may function as an upstream activator of NF-kappa-B signaling. Inhibits TNF-alpha induced activation and nuclear translocation of RELA/NF-KB p65. Also inhibits transcriptional activity of RELA. Activates caspase-1 in response to a number of triggers including bacterial or viral infection which leads to processing and release of IL1B and IL18.|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in blood leukocytes. Strongly expressed in polymorphonuclear cells and osteoblasts. Undetectable or expressed at a lower magnitude in B- and T-lymphoblasts, respectively. High level of expression detected in chondrocytes Detected in non-keratinizing epithelia of oropharynx, esophagus and ectocervix and in the urothelial layer of the bladder|

NALP3 Antibody: NALP3, a member of Nod-like receptors, has a crucial role in inflammation and immunity and may be a proximal sensor of cellular stress and danger signals. NALP3 forms a caspase-1 activating molecular complex termed the inflammasome. The inflammasome allows activation of IL-1β, the key player of the inflammation and fever. NALP3 gene encodes a pyrin like protein which contains a pyrin domain, a nucleotide binding site (NBS) domain, and a leucine rich repeat (LRR) motif. NALP3 protein interacts with apoptosis associated speck like protein containing a CARD and may function as an inducer of apoptosis and an activator of NF-κB signaling. Defects in NALP3 have been associated with familial cold autoinflammatory syndrome (FCAS), Muckle-Wells syndrome (MWS), chronic infantile neurological cutaneous and articular (CINCA) syndrome, and neonatal-onset multisystem inflammatory disease (NOMID).
