Secondary Information

Protein Function  NOD2 can detect intracellular muramyl dipeptide (MDP) in the bacterial wall, thereby causing an inflammatory response. 
Biochemical Properties Nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain-containing protein (NOD) are pattern-recognition receptors (PRR), and NOD1 and NOD2, previously known as caspase activation and recruitment (CARD) domain family member CARD4 and CARD15, represent the founding members of the NOD-like receptor family. Different to other membrane bound PRRs, they operate as soluble cytosolic receptors recognizing conserved bacterial peptidoglycan fragments (muropeptides) in order to initiate an adequate immune response

Significance of PTMs Polyubiquitinated following MDP stimulation, leading to proteasome-mediated degradation.
Additional Comments Deficiency of Nod1 and Nod2 led to reduced plaque lipid deposition and inflammatory cell infiltration in atherosclerotic plaques. This might be explained by diminished plasma lipid levels and foam cell formation due to altered expression of key regulators of the hepatic cholesterol pathway as well as differential intestinal cholesterol metabolism and microbiota composition.
