An overview of MALT1
Mucosa-associated lymphoid lymphoma translocation protein 1 (MALT1), encoded by MALT1 gene, belongs to the paracaspase family. MALT1 has great influence on immunity, inflammation and lymphoid malignances by activating immune cells. . For example, MALT1 could be detected in advanced stages of MALT1 for the linkage to oncogenic protein encoded by a chromosomal translocation. In the future, research on MALT1 will focus more on its molecular function and figure out the full spectrum of its substrates.
