(pī'rin),
An abnormal neutrophil protein encoded by the MEFV gene in familial Mediterranean fever.

marenostrin

A 781-residue protein encoded by MEFV that modulates innate immunity and is thought to control the inflammatory response in myelomonocytic cells at the level of cytoskeletal organisation.

Molecular pathology
Mutations in MEFV are associated with Mediterranean fever.

For example, although it was not detected by GWASs, a SNP in the 3'-UTR of NLR family, pyrin domain containing 3 (NLRP3), which controls the activation of inflammatory caspase-1 by forming NLRP3-inflammasomes, was found to be significantly associated with susceptibility to Japanese food-induced anaphylaxis.
