STRINGSTRING
Nlrp6 protein (Rattus norvegicus) - STRING interaction network
"Nlrp6" - PYRIN-containing APAF1-like protein 5-like in Rattus norvegicus
Nodes:
Network nodes represent proteins
splice isoforms or post-translational modifications are collapsed, i.e. each node represents all the proteins produced by a single, protein-coding gene locus.
Node Color
colored nodes:
query proteins and first shell of interactors
white nodes:
second shell of interactors
Node Content
empty nodes:
proteins of unknown 3D structure
filled nodes:
some 3D structure is known or predicted
Edges:
Edges represent protein-protein associations
associations are meant to be specific and meaningful, i.e. proteins jointly contribute to a shared function; this does not necessarily mean they are physically binding each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

Nlrp6PYRIN-containing APAF1-like protein 5-like; As the sensor component of the NLRP6 inflammasome, plays a crucial role in innate immunity and inflammation. In response to yet unidentified signals, initiates the formation of the inflammasome polymeric complex, made of NLRP6, PYCARD and CASP1. Recruitement of proCASP1 to the inflammasome promotes its activation and CASP1-catalyzed IL1B and IL18 maturation and secretion in the extracellular milieu. The precise NLRP6 activation stimulus has not been identified yet (By similarity). Essential for gut mucosal self-renewal and proliferation. Main [...] (881 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Nlrc4
NLR family CARD domain-containing protein 4 ; Key component of inflammasomes that indirectly senses specific proteins from pathogenic bacteria and fungi and responds by assembling an inflammasome complex that promotes caspase-1 activation, cytokine production and macrophage pyroptosis (1023 aa)
     
 
  0.806
Casp1
Caspase-1 ; Thiol protease that cleaves IL-1 beta between an Asp and an Ala, releasing the mature cytokine which is involved in a variety of inflammatory processes. Important for defense against pathogens. Cleaves and activates sterol regulatory element binding proteins (SREBPs). Can also promote apoptosis (By similarity) (401 aa)
         
  0.717
Aim2
Absent in melanoma 2 (356 aa)
           
  0.572
Mefv
Pyrin ; Involved in the regulation of innate immunity and the inflammatory response in response to IFNG/IFN-gamma. Organizes autophagic machinery by serving as a platform for the assembly of ULK1, Beclin 1/BECN1, ATG16L1, and ATG8 family members and recognizes specific autophagy targets, thus coordinating target recognition with assembly of the autophagic apparatus and initiation of autophagy. Acts as an autophagy receptor for the degradation of several inflammasome components, including CASP1, NLRP1 and NLRP3, hence preventing excessive IL1B- and IL18- mediated inflammation. However, [...] (747 aa)
           
  0.483
Cxcr5
C-X-C chemokine receptor type 5 ; Cytokine receptor that binds to B-lymphocyte chemoattractant (BLC). Involved in B-cell migration into B-cell follicles of spleen and Peyer patches but not into those of mesenteric or peripheral lymph nodes (By similarity) (374 aa)
           
  0.416
Naip5
Protein Naip5 (1402 aa)
           
  0.416
