Gene: MEFV (MEFV innate immuity regulator, pyrin) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MEFV
Name: MEFV innate immuity regulator, pyrin
Description: Exhibits actin binding activity and identical protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of NLRP3 inflammasome complex assembly; negative regulation of cytokine production; and positive regulation of cellular metabolic process. Localizes to the cytosol; microtubule associated complex; and nucleoplasm. Implicated in Henoch-Schoenlein purpura; asthma; familial Mediterranean fever; hematologic cancer (multiple); and lung disease.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: FMF; marenostrin; Mediterranean fever; MEF; MEFV, pyrin innate immunity regulator; MGC126560; MGC126586; pyrin; TRIM20
