Escherichia coli Rho GTPase-activating toxin CNF1 mediates NLRP3 inflammasome activation via p21-activated kinases-1/2 during bacteraemia in mice. Nature Microbiology. 2021 Jan 11; doi: 10.1038/s41564-020-00832-5. Full Text

"Caspase-1 activation was detected using the fluorescent probe FAM-FLICA (ImmunoChemistry Technologies) after 6 h of treatment, according to the manufacturer’s instructions. After labelling, cells were fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde for 15 min, PFA was neutralized with 50 mM NH4Cl for 15 min, cells were permeabilized with 0.5% Triton X-100 for 5 min and blocked with 2% TBS-BSA. Cells were incubated with mouse anti-NLRP3 (clone Cryo-2, Adipogen) and/or rabbit anti-ASC (AG-25B-0006, Adipogen) or rabbit anti-phosphorylated-Pak (ab40795, Abcam) antibodies for 1 h followed..."
