Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have Pyrin domain binding activity. Predicted to be involved in negative regulation of NF-kappaB transcription factor activity; positive regulation of cysteine-type endopeptidase activity involved in apoptotic process; and positive regulation of interleukin-1 beta secretion. Predicted to colocalize with nuclear chromosome, telomeric region. Is expressed in early conceptus and ovary. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in gestational trophoblastic neoplasm. Orthologous to several human genes including NLRP2 (NLR family pyrin domain containing 2).
