      Background InformationAIRE (Autoimmune Regulator) is a human gene that is expressed primarily in the thymus. It causes transcription of a wide selection of organ-specific genes, reducing the threat of autoimmunity occurring by allowing the elimination of autoreactive T cells via negative selection. Defects in this gene cause the rare autosomal-recessive systemic autoimmune disease termed autoimmune polyendo-crinopathy-candidiasis-ectodermal dystrophy (APECED). Disruption of AIRE results in the development of a range of autoimmune diseases, the most common clinical conditions in the syndrome are hypoparathyroidism, primary adrenocortical failure and chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis. Aire functions through initiating the transcription of a diverse set of self-antigens, such as insulin, in the thymus. This expression then allows maturing thymocytes to become tolerant towards peripheral organs, thereby suppressing autoimmune disease. Aire is atranscriptional regulator protein that binds to DNA as dimer and tetramer, but not as a monomer. It forms nuclear bodies and interacts with the transcriptional coactivator CBP (CREBBP). At least three splice variant mRNAs products have been described including one which results in a premature stop codon and a transcript predicted to be a candidate for nuclear-mediated decay (NMD).
