NALP3 is a cytoplasmic protein belonging to the NLRP family. NALP3 is involved in inflammation and immune response. Research indicates that NALP3 may function as an activator of NF-kappaB signalling and play a role in the regulation of inflammation and apoptosis. Mutations in the NALP3 gene have been associated with familial cold autoinflammatory syndrome (FCAS), Muckle-Wells syndrome (MWS), chronic infantile neurological cutaneous and articular (CINCA) syndrome, and neonatal-onset multisystem inflammatory disease (NOMID). NALP3 is strongly expressed in polymorphonuclear cells, osteoblasts and chondrocytes, NALP3 can also be detected in non-keratinizing epithelia of oropharynx, esophagus and ectocervix and in the urothelial layer of the bladder.
