Goat anti Human NALP3 antibody recognizes human NACHT, LRR and PYD domains-containing protein 3 (NALP3), also known as Angiotensin/vasopressin receptor AII/AVP-like, Caterpiller protein 1.1 or Cryopyrin. NALP3 is a 1036 amino acid ~120kDa cytoplasmic protein belonging to the NLRP family, containing a single DAPIN domain, nine leucine-rich repeats and a single NACHT domain (UniProt: Q96P20) .

NALP3 is involved in inflammation and immune responses. NALP3 may function as an activator of NF-kappaB signalling and play a role in the regulation of inflammation and apoptosis (Choi and Ryter 2014). NALP3 is strongly expressed in polymorphonuclear cells, osteoblasts and chondrocytes, NALP3 can also be detected in non-keratinizing epithelia of oropharynx, esophagus and ectocervix and in the urothelial layer of the bladder.

Mutations in the NALP3 gene have been associated with familial cold autoinflammatory syndrome (Hoffman et al. 2001), Muckle-Wells syndrome (Dodé et al. 2002), chronic infantile neurological cutaneous and articular syndrome (Feldmann et al. 2002) and neonatal-onset multisystem inflammatory disease (Aksentijevich et al. 2002).

Goat anti Human NALP3 antibody has been used successfuly for the detection of NALP3 in the eyes of rats by immunohistochemistry on formalin fixed, paraffin embedded sections (Liu et al. 2014).
