26468282 ASC Induces Procaspase-8 Death Effector Domain Filaments
26457439 The proteins of NLRP3, ASC, and caspase-1 were observed in infiltrating inflammatory cells in cholesteatoma and chronic otitis media.
26093088 ASC/TMS1 methylation was significantly correlated with higher tumor nuclear grade. ASC/TMS1 is a novel functional tumor suppressor in renal carcinogenesis.
25567507 ASC interacts with NALP3 and caspase-1 via different domains.
25372293 caspase-1/ASC inflammasomes play a significant role in the activation of IL-1beta/ROS and NF-kappaB signaling of cytokine gene expression for T. cruzi control in human and mouse macrophages.
25205754 Neutralization of ASC improves sperm motility in men with spinal cord injuries.
25191796 The proteins (HSP90b, TSM1 and L-plastin) in the current study may hold potential in differentiating between melanoma and benign nevi in diagnostically challenging cases.
25061439 mRNA levels of Apoptosis-associated Speck-like protein were significantly higher in freshly isolated PBMCs from Chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis patients in active disease than in healthy controls.
25011057 Transcriptome analysis of human adipocytes implicates the NOD-like receptor pathway (NLRP3, PYCARD) in obesity-induced adipose inflammation.
25006247 R42W mutation had a significant effect on structure and increased stability. Although the R42W mutant exhibited reduced interaction with ASC
