Appears in Networks 1



One checkpoint is that bacterial mRNA from live bacteria (also known as vita-PAMPs)44 activates NLRP3; the other checkpoint is that TLR4- and TRIF (TIR domain-containing adaptor protein inducing IFNβ)-dependent signalling — which is triggered by bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS) — mediate the secretion of type I IFNs, inducing pro-caspase 11 expression and activation by triggering the IFNα/β receptor (IFNAR) (FIG. 1).
