Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits protease binding activity. Predicted to contribute to kinase activator activity. Involved in several processes, including lipopolysaccharide-mediated signaling pathway; positive regulation of NF-kappaB transcription factor activity; and positive regulation of immune response. Localizes to the cytosol. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in lymphoma; non-Hodgkin lymphoma; and primary immunodeficiency disease. Orthologous to human MALT1 (MALT1 paracaspase).
