AIM2 Information: AIM2 Protein, AIM2 Antibody and AIM2 Gene

AIM2 Gene family

AIM2 Protein

AIM2 protein function

Involved in innate immune response by recognizing cytosolic double-stranded DNA and inducing caspase-1-activating inflammasome formation in macrophages. Upon binding to DNA is thought to undergo oligomerization and to associate with PYCARD initiating the recruitment of caspase-1 precusrsor and processing of interleukin-1 beta and interleukin-18. Detects cytosolic dsDNA of viral and bacterial origin in a non-sequence-specific manner. Can also trigger PYCARD-dependent, caspase-1-independent cell death that involves caspase-8 (By similarity). Tumor suppressor which may act by repressing NF-kappa-B transcriptional activity. {ECO:0000250, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16432157, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17726700, ECO:0000269|PubMed:19158675, ECO:0000269|PubMed:19158676, ECO:0000269|PubMed:19158679, ECO:0000269|PubMed:20566831}.
