Functioni

Involved in innate immunity and the inflammatory response. Interacts with several components of the inflammasome complex, a large oligomeric structure which recruits and activates CASP1 and ultimately induces maturation of cytokines such as IL1B. However, the exact role of MEFV in the inflammatory pathway is uncertain as contradictory effects on IL1B processing have been reported in different experimental systems. Has been shown to activate IL1B production (1 Publication). Has also been shown to inhibit IL1B production (1 Publication, 1 Publication). Also required for PSTPIP1-induced PYCARD oligomerization and for formation of pyroptosomes, large supramolecular structures composed of oligomerized PYCARD dimers which form prior to inflammatory apoptosis. Can reduce PYCARD-induced apoptosis. Recruits PSTPIP1 to pyroptosomes, and required for PSTPIP1 oligomerization.8 Publications

Involvement in diseasei

Familial Mediterranean fever, autosomal recessive (ARFMF) [MIM:249100]: A hereditary periodic fever syndrome characterized by recurrent episodic fever, serosal inflammation and pain in the abdomen, chest or joints. It is frequently complicated by reactive amyloidosis, which leads to renal failure and can be prophylactically treated with colchicine.
Note: The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.17 Publications
Familial Mediterranean fever, autosomal dominant (ADFMF) [MIM:134610]: A hereditary periodic fever syndrome characterized by periodic fever, serosal inflammation and pain in the abdomen, chest or joints as seen also in the autosomal recessive form of the disease. It is associated with reactive renal amyloidosis and characterized by colchicine unresponsiveness.
Note: The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.4 Publications

Post-translational modificationi

Cleaved by CASP1 Inferred. The N-terminal cleavage product localizes to the nucleus as a filamentous network and to the cytoplasm, interacts more strongly with RELA and NFKBIA than the full-length protein, enhances the nuclear localization of RELA and induces NFKBIA proteolysis. The C-terminal cleavage product localizes to the cytoplasm.

Expressioni

Tissue specificityi

Expressed in peripheral blood leukocytes, particularly in mature granulocytes and to a lesser extent in monocytes but not in lymphocytes. Detected in spleen, lung and muscle, probably as a result of leukocyte infiltration in these tissues. Not expressed in thymus, prostate, testis, ovary, small intestine, colon, heart, brain, placenta, liver, kidney, pancreas. Expression detected in several myeloid leukemic, colon cancer, and prostate cancer cell lines.3 Publications

Developmental stagei

First detected in bone marrow promyelocytes. Expression increases throughout myelocyte differentiation and peaks in the mature myelomonocytic cells.1 Publication

Inductioni

In monocytes, by treatment with colchicine and IFN-alpha, by the proinflammatory cytokines IFNG/IFN-gamma and TNF, by bacterial lipopolysaccharides (LPS) and by retroviral infection. Repressed in monocytes by the antiinflammatory cytokines IL10/interleukin-10, TGFB1 and IL4/interleukin-4. In neutrophils, colchicine, TNF, bacterial lipopolysaccharides (LPS), IL10/interleukin-10, INF-alpha and IL4/interleukin-4 have no effect on expression. IFNG/IFN-gamma increases expression in neutrophils.2 Publications
