Immunopharmacology Comments
NLRP proteins are critical components of inflammasome complexes and are thereby involved in inflammasome-mediated activation of proinflammatory caspases. NLRP13 has the typical PYD-NACHT-LRR domain structure common to the NLRP protein family [1]. But despite this structural homology the biological function of NLRP13 is not as well defined as other related proteins.
General Comments
The function of NLRP13 is not well defined.
