Biological Activity for INF 4E

INF 4E is a NLRP3 inflammasome and caspase-1 inhibitor (Ki = 9.6 μM for caspase-1). Inhibits Nigericin (Cat. No. 4312) or ATP (Cat.No. 3245) induced pyroptosis of PMA-differentiated and LPS-primed THP-1 cells and activates the Keap1-Nrf2 pathway.

The inhibitor can inhibit NLRP3 inflammasomes and block IL-1b production.
By Xiaogang Wang on 09/15/2020
Assay Type: In Vitro
Species: Human
Cell Line/Tissue: THP-1

We used this product to study whether bacterial component can induce NLRP3-mediated IL-1beta production. To confirm whether this inhibitor works well, we pretreated THP-1 cells with the inhibitor for 1 h, followed by treatment with LPS+ATP for 2 h. The production of IL-1b in culture supernatant was measured by IL-1b ELISA kit. We showed that this inhibitor can significantly inhibit LPS/ATP-induced IL-1b production.

Cell Cycle & DNA Damage Repair Poster

Cell Cycle & DNA Damage Repair Poster

In normal cells, each stage of the cell cycle is tightly regulated, however in cancer cells many genes and proteins that are involved in the regulation of the cell cycle are mutated or over expressed. This poster summarizes the stages of the cell cycle and DNA repair. It also highlights strategies for enhancing replicative stress in cancer cells to force mitotic catastrophe and cell death.

Huntington's Disease Poster

Huntington's Disease Poster

Huntington's disease (HD) is a severe monogenic neurodegenerative disorder, which is characterized by the prevalent loss of GABAergic medium spiny neurons (MSN) in the striatum. This poster summarizes the effects of mutant huntingtin aggregation implicated in the pathology of HD, as well as highlighting the use of iPSCs for HD modeling.

Parkinson's Disease Poster

Parkinson's Disease Poster

Parkinson's disease (PD) causes chronic disability and is the second most common neurodegenerative condition. This poster outlines the neurobiology of the disease, as well as highlighting current therapeutic treatments for symptomatic PD, and emerging therapeutic strategies to delay PD onset and progression.

Programmed Cell Death Poster

Programmed Cell Death Poster

There are two currently recognized forms of programmed cell death: apoptosis and necroptosis. This poster summarizes the signaling pathways involved in apoptosis, necroptosis and cell survival following death receptor activation, and highlights the influence of the molecular switch, cFLIP, on cell fate.
