Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Predicted to enable peptide binding activity and vasopressin receptor activity. Involved in negative regulation of ERK1 and ERK2 cascade and negative regulation of inflammatory response to antigenic stimulus. 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 inflammasome complex. Is expressed in thymus primordium. Orthologous to human NLRP6 (NLR family pyrin domain containing 6).
