Western blot analysis of NLRP2 in differentiated THP-1 cells following IFN (interferon) g stimulation using NLRP2 polyclonal antibody (Cat # PAB0267) at 1 : 2000. TPA-differentiated THP-1 cells were cultured with 1000 units of IFNg for 0-24 hours as described in Bruey et al, 2004. Culturing differentiated THP-1 with IFNg resulted in transient elevations in NLRP2 expression which peaked at 4-8 h after INFg treatment.
NALP proteins, such as NALP2, are characterized by an N-terminal pyrin (MIM 608107) domain (PYD) and are involved in the activation of caspase-1 (CASP1; MIM 147678) by Toll-like receptors (see TLR4; MIM 603030). They may also be involved in protein complexes that activate proinflammatory caspases (Tschopp et al., 2003 [PubMed 12563287]).[supplied by OMIM
