Immunoresponsive 1 homolog (mouse); Involved in the inhibition of the inflammatory response. Acts as a negative regulator of the Toll-like receptors (TLRs)- mediated inflammatory innate response by stimulating the tumor necrosis factor alpha-induced protein TNFAIP3 expression via reactive oxygen species (ROS) in LPS-tolerized macrophages. Involved in antimicrobial response of innate immune cells; ACOD1- mediated itaconic acid production contributes to the antimicrobial activity of macrophages. Plays a role in the embryo implantation.
Synonyms: IRG1, IRG1p, hIRG1, A6NK06, ACOD1 ...
