NALP4 May be involved in inflammation and recognition of cytosolic pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) not intercepted by membrane-bound receptors. Acts as a negative regulator of the type I interferon signaling pathway by serving as an adapter to promote DTX4-mediated ubiquitination of activated TBK1, and its subsequent degradation. Suppresses NF-kappaB induction by the cytokines TNFA and IL1B, suggesting that it operates at a point of convergence in these two cytokine signaling pathways. Belongs to the NLRP family. 3 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
