A new look at caspase 12 research
Inflammasomes are assemblies that are central to inflammatory responses. Now researchers shed new light on function of caspase 12. They have rid the field of a stubborn dogma, which held that caspase 12 was a negative regulator of inflammasomes. These novel insights pave the way for researchers to break from route of existing research and identify the real physiological functions of caspase 12.
