NLR family, pyrin domain containing 1

This gene encodes a member of the Ced-4 family of apoptosis proteins. Ced-family members contain a caspase recruitment domain (CARD) and are known to be key mediators of programmed cell death. The encoded protein contains a distinct N-terminal pyrin-like motif, which is possibly involved in protein-protein interactions. This protein interacts strongly with caspase 2 and weakly with caspase 9. Overexpression of this gene was demonstrated to induce apoptosis in cells. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been found for this gene, but the biological validity of some variants has not been determined.

Hyperactivated mTOR and JAK2/STAT3 Pathways: Molecular Drivers and Potential Therapeutic Targets of Inflammatory and Invasive Ductal Breast Cancers After Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy.
Schneider et al., New Haven, United States. In Clin Breast Cancer, Jan 2016
PATIENTS AND METHODS: Archival tumor tissue from 3 disease types (IBC treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy [NAC], n = 45; invasive ductal carcinoma [IDC] treated with NAC [n = 24; 'treated IDC'; and untreated IDC [n = 27; 'untreated IDC']) was analyzed for the expression of biomarkers phospho-S6 (pS6) (mTOR), phospho-JAK2 (pJAK2), pSTAT3, interleukin (IL)-6, CD68 (monocytes, macrophages), and CD163 (TAMs).
Oncological safety of prophylactic breast surgery: skin-sparing and nipple-sparing versus total mastectomy.
Koppert et al., Rotterdam, Netherlands. In Gland Surg, Dec 2015
To allow for immediate breast reconstruction the skin envelope is left in situ with or without the nipple-areola complex (NAC).
An increased need for dietary cysteine in support of glutathione synthesis may underlie the increased risk for mortality associated with low protein intake in the elderly.
DiNicolantonio et al., Carlsbad, United States. In Age (dordr), Oct 2015
Fortunately, since GCL's K m for cysteine is close to intracellular cysteine levels, increased intakes of cysteine-achieved from whole proteins or via supplementation with N-acetylcysteine (NAC)-can achieve a compensatory increase in glutathione synthesis, such that more youthful tissue levels of this compound can be restored.
The principle of antagonism ensures protein targeting specificity at the endoplasmic reticulum.

Molecular control of kinetochore-microtubule dynamics and chromosome oscillations.
Meraldi et al., Zürich, Switzerland. In Nat Cell Biol, 2010
Here we show that centromere protein (CENP)-H, a subunit of the CENP-A nucleosome-associated and CENP-A distal complexes (CENP-A NAC/CAD), is essential for this coordination, because kinetochores lacking CENP-H establish bioriented attachments but fail to generate regular oscillations, as a result of an uncontrolled rate of microtubule plus-end turnover.
