Immunopharmacology Comments
NRAMP1 / SLC11A1 appears to be involved in macrophage antimicrobial action against intracellular pathogens, and although its precise mechanism is not fully resolved, evidence indicates its involvement in the activation of phagocytes and synthesis of proinflammatory cytokines. Polymorphisms in the human SLC11A1 gene have been associated with susceptibility to several infections [1,3-4], and more recently in genetic susceptibility to development of rheumatoid arthritis [2] (describing a protective role for the SLC11A1D543N variant in the tested population) .
