Immunity-related GTPase family M protein

Gene

IRGM

Organism
Homo sapiens (Human)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Putative GTPase which is required for clearance of acute protozoan and bacterial infections. Functions in innate immune response probably through regulation of autophagy. May regulate proinflammatory cytokine production and prevent endotoxemia upon infection. May also play a role in macrophages adhesion and motility (By similarity).By similarity1 Publication

Miscellaneous

Depletion of IRGM by siRNA favors mycobacteria survival in macrophages.
There is a huge difference in terms of sequence and regulation of expression compared to the mouse ortholog and hence, the function might be slightly different.1 Publication

Involvement in diseasei

Inflammatory bowel disease 19 (IBD19)3 Publications
Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
Disease descriptionA chronic, relapsing inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract with a complex etiology. It is subdivided into Crohn disease and ulcerative colitis phenotypes. Crohn disease may affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract from the mouth to the anus, but most frequently it involves the terminal ileum and colon. Bowel inflammation is transmural and discontinuous; it may contain granulomas or be associated with intestinal or perianal fistulas. In contrast, in ulcerative colitis, the inflammation is continuous and limited to rectal and colonic mucosal layers; fistulas and granulomas are not observed. Both diseases include extraintestinal inflammation of the skin, eyes, or joints.
