Inflammasomes in human diseases
The understanding of the innate immunity, the first line of the host defence, was significantly modified following the sequential discovery of innate immune receptors such as the Toll-like receptors (TLRs) and the NOD-like receptors (NLRs). In response to recognition of microbial patterns or danger signals, some NLRs assemble a multimolecular platform termed as the inflammasome. Inflammasome assembly leads to the activation of the proinflammatory caspase-1. Consequently, an inflammatory immune response is mounted along with a programmed cell death, called pyroptosis. This review summarizes recent advances in the knowledge of the inflammasome and its role in auto-inflammatory diseases, autoimmune diseases, and most common metabolic, cardiovascular or rheumatic diseases.
