Progress in Inflammation Research
Inflammasomes are crucial actors of the innate immunity. They consist of cytoplasmic multiprotein complexes controlling the biological activities of the inflammatory cytokines IL-1ß and IL-18. Inflammasome assembly depends on protein domain interaction. In this chapter, we focus on the biochemical aspects characterizing the components of the inflammasomes and their assembly into a high moelcuar weight protelytic complex.
