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.

7,8) There are data in the literature which support that pyrin protein encoded by MEFV gene takes a role in the intracellular control of inflammation.
In addition to CD27, Siva-1 can interact with the peroxisomal membrane protein (PMP22) (4), tyrosine kinase 2 (Tyk2) (5), pyrin (6), lysophosphatidic acid receptor 2 (LPA2) (7), the CVB3 capsid protein VP2 (8), and CD4 (9).
ASC is a protein comprised of an N-terminal Pyrin domain and a C-terminal CARD domain (Richards et al.
Using different mouse models of inflammasome deficiency, such as mice deficient in Asc (apoptosis-associated speck-like protein containing a caspase recruitment domain), NLRP3 (nucleotide-binding domain, leucine rich family, pyrin containing 3), caspase, or interleukin 18, the authors showed significant alterations in gut microbiota as evidenced by increased members of Bacteriodetes and decreased members of Firmicutes in these mouse models.
FMF is caused by mutations in the MEFV gene which encodes the anti-inflammatory pyrin protein.

5,6) When nonsense or missense mutations in the MEFV gene occur, pyrin becomes either mutated or not produced.
It is approximately 10 kilobases, with 10 exons expressing a transcript coding a 781-amino-acid protein known as pyrin, or marenostrin.
The researchers theorize that normal pyrin shuts off inflammation, the body's response to infection that results in fever, swelling, and pain.
Pyrin is expressed mainly in granulocytes and is thought to be a negative regulator of inflammation.
