Molecular mechanisms activating the NAIP‐NLRC4 inflammasome: Implications in infectious disease, autoinflammation, and cancer
Cytosolic innate immune sensing is a cornerstone of innate immunity in mammalian cells and provides a surveillance system for invading pathogens and endogenous danger signals. The NAIP‐NLRC4 inflammasome responds to cytosolic flagellin, and the inner rod and needle proteins of the type 3 secretion system of bacteria. This complex induces caspase‐1‐dependent proteolytic cleavage of the proinflammatory cytokines IL‐1β and IL‐18, and the pore‐forming protein gasdermin D, leading to inflammation...[Show more]
