NLRC4 Key component of inflammasomes that indirectly senses specific proteins from pathogenic bacteria and fungi and responds by assembling an inflammasome complex that promotes caspase-1 activation, cytokine production and macrophage pyroptosis. 4 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
