FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a member of the CATERPILLER family of cytoplasmic proteins. The encoded protein, which contains an N-terminal pyrin domain, a NACHT domain, a NACHT-associated domain, and a C-terminus leucine-rich repeat region, functions as an attenuating factor of inflammation by suppressing inflammatory responses in activated monocytes. Mutations in this gene cause familial cold autoinflammatory syndrome type 2. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2013]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a null allele have defects in dendritic and myeloid cell migration and a decreased susceptibility to type IV hypersensitivity reactions. Mice homozygous for a second null allele display increased susceptibility to induced colitis and to chemically-induced tumors. [provided by MGI curators]
