“Structure, function, and regulation of inflammatory caspases in inflammation and pyroptosis”

In innate immunity, the inflammasomes are large molecular machineries that are responsible for combating microbial infections. A canonical inflammasome complex contains the sensor protein, the adaptor protein called apoptosis-associated speck-like protein (ASC), and the cysteine protease [read more]
