NALP3 is a cytoplasmic, pyrin-like protein belonging to the NLRP family with a DPIN domain, seven leucine rich repeats and a NACHT domain. It is known to interact with apoptosis-associated speck-like protein PYCARD/ASC and is a part of the NALP3 inflammasome complex. NALP3 is involved in the activation of caspase-1 and caspase-5 in response to a number of triggers including bacterial or viral infection, thus leading to the processing of IL-1B and IL-18. It may also inhibit TNF-alpha-induced activation and nuclear translocation of RELA/NF-KB p65 and function in the activation of NF-kappa-B signaling, thus regulating inflammation and apoptosis. Expression is predominantly in peripheral blood leukocytes, polymorphonuclear cells, osteoblasts and chondrocytes. NALP3 defects leads to several diseases including familial cold auto inflammatory syndrome type 1 (FCAS1), Muckle-Wells syndrome (MWS), chronic infantile neurological cutaneous and articular (CINCA) syndrome, and neonatal-onset multisystem inflammatory disease (NOMID).
