Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Enables several functions, including double-stranded RNA binding activity; lipoteichoic acid binding activity; and molecular condensate scaffold activity. Involved in several processes, including defense response to other organism; protein-containing complex assembly; and regulation of inflammatory response. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including activation of cysteine-type endopeptidase activity; negative regulation of interferon-gamma production; and negative regulation of signal transduction. Part of NLRP6 inflammasome complex. Is active in non-membrane-bounded organelle. Is expressed in thymus primordium. Orthologous to human NLRP6 (NLR family pyrin domain containing 6).
