Résumé
Cytoplasmic double-stranded DNA triggers cell death and secretion of the pro-inflammatory cytokine IL-1beta in macrophages. Recent reports now describe the mechanism underlying this observation. Upon sensing of DNA, the HIN-200 family member AIM2 triggers the assembly of the inflammasome, culminating in caspase-1 activation, IL-1beta maturation and pyroptotic cell death.
