The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 20 µg/ml.
Use a concentration of 1 - 2 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 120 kDa.
Use at an assay dependent concentration.
FunctionMay mediate activation of CASP1 via ASC and promote activation of NF-kappa-B via IKK.
Tissue specificityDetected only in peripheral blood leukocytes, predominantly in eosinophils and granulocytes, and at lower levels in monocytes.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in NLRP12 are the cause of familial cold autoinflammatory syndrome type 2 (FCAS2) [MIM:611762]. FCAS are rare autosomal dominant systemic inflammatory diseases characterized by episodes of rash, arthralgia, fever and conjunctivitis after generalized exposure to cold.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the NLRP family. Contains 1 DAPIN domain. Contains 8 LRR (leucine-rich) repeats. Contains 1 NACHT domain.
