NOD27, or NLR family, CARD domain containing 5, is a human gene encoded by NLRC5. It may also be known as: Protein NLRC5; Caterpiller protein 16.1; CLR16.1; Nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain protein 27; Nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain protein 4; nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain, leucine rich repeat and CARD domain containing 5; NOD-like receptor C5; NOD4. The encoded protein has an amino acid length of 1866 and a mass of 204.6 kDa. Other isoforms may exist. NOD27 is a member of the NLRP family. Homologs of this gene exist in other organisms, including: Mouse, Rat, Zebrafish, Frog, Chicken.
