27037024 Molecular docking analysis reveals that the conformation switching may be important for the autoinhibition of the AIM2 protein.
26506473 Lung tumor-associated plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDCs) are responsive to the activation of AIM2 that promotes calcium efflux and reactive oxygen species from mitochondria, leading to calpain activation and high levels of IL-1alpha.
26378020 The extent of NLRC3 and AIM2 gene reduction was correlated with cancer progression.
26313692 A significant upregulation of the PYHIN inflammasomes AIM2 and IFI16 in active inflammatory bowel disease versus controls was found.
26258904 analysis of a subset of inflammasome receptors including NLRP3, NLRC4 and AIM2 that triggers formation of the micrometer-sized spherical supramolecular complex called the ASC speck
26197926 pyrin domain drives both filament formation and dsDNA binding
25888795 The comparison shows mouse AIM2 PYD domain adopts a unique alpha2-alpha3 helix conformation distinct from its human homologues, but similar to the pyrin domain of human NLRP10/PYNOD, which belongs to another family.
25173967 activation of the AIM2 inflammasome did not require a priming signal in ascitic fluid-derived macrophages, demonstrating the preactivated state of the inflammasome in these cells.
25164813 EB1 has a role in linking AIM2 inflammasomes with autophagy-dependent secretion
24986444 These results suggest that AIM2 expressed in human dental pulp plays an important role in the immune defense by activating the inflammasome signaling pathway.
