Immunopharmacology Comments
NLRC5 is an intracellular pattern recognition receptor mediating an innate immune response to viral infection [4], likely by modulating the NF-κB and type I interferon signaling pathways [1-2].
Immuno Process Associations
Immuno Process:  Inflammation
Immuno Process:  Immune regulation
Immuno Process:  Cytokine production & signalling
Immuno Disease Associations
Disease Name:  Rheumatoid arthritis
Disease Synonyms:  no synonynms
Comment:  A study by Liu et al. (2017) found that NLRC5 is upregulated in synovial tissues and cells of AA animal models, NLRC5 silencing inhibits inflammatory cytokine expression and cell proliferation of fibroblast-like synoviocytes, and that NLRC5 expression inducescell proliferation via NF-κB activation and signaling.
Disease X-refs:  Disease Ontology: DOID:7148
OMIM: 180300

Physiological Functions Comments
Transactivator of class I major histocompatibility complex genes.
