a tumor suppressor which may act by repressing NF-kappa-B transcriptional activity. Induced by interferon gamma. Defects in AIM2 may be a cause of microsatellite unstable colon cancers. AIM2 and various NOD-like receptors form multiprotein complexes called inflammasomes, which mediate caspase-1-dependent processing of pro-IL-1beta.
