Gene: Nlrp3 (NLR family, pyrin domain containing 3) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Nlrp3
Name: NLR family, pyrin domain containing 3
Description: Predicted to have identical protein binding activity, sequence-specific DNA binding activity, and transcription factor binding activity; predicted to be involved in several processes, including positive regulation of cytokine production, regulation of cellular biosynthetic process, and response to bacterium; predicted to localize to the NLRP3 inflammasome complex and nucleus; orthologous to human NLRP3 (NLR family pyrin domain containing 3); PARTICIPATES IN interleukin-1 signaling pathway; influenza A pathway; NOD-like receptor signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (RS)-amphetamine; 2,4,6-trinitrobenzenesulfonic acid; 2-HYDROXY-(5-([4-(2-PYRIDINYLAMINO)SULFONYL]PHENYL)AZO)BENZOIC ACID.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: Cias1; cold autoinflammatory syndrome 1; cold autoinflammatory syndrome 1 homolog; cold autoinflammatory syndrome 1 homolog (human); cold autoinflammatory syndrome 1 protein homolog; cryopyrin; LOC287362; mast cell maturation-associated-inducible protein 1; NACHT, LRR and PYD domains-containing protein 3; PYRIN-containing APAF1-like protein 1
