Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Dose Response confirmation of inhibitors of NALP3 in yeast using a Caspase-1-ASC counter screen
Description:  Data Source: Sanford-Burnham Center for Chemical Genomics (SBCCG) Source Affiliation: Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute (SBMRI, San Diego, CA) Network: NIH Molecular Libraries Production Centers Network (MLPCN) Grant Number: 1 U01 AI078048 Assay Provider: Dr. John C. Reed, Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute, San Diego CA NLR family proteins are an important component of the innate immune system of vertebrates. These proteins possess a nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain, called NACHT, in combination with variable numbers of Leucine-Rich Repeat (LRR) domains that bind molecules produced by pathogens and probably also products of tissue injury. Among the effector mechanisms of NLR family proteins is activation of Caspase-1, which cleaves and activates pro-inflammatory cytokines. We present here a unique primary assay, in which we have reconstituted the mammalian Caspase mediated IL-1 activation pathway consisting of NLRP3 (NALP3), ASC, and Caspase-1 in Saccharo
