    ..2018) demonstrate that TNF-TNFR superfamily molecules LIGHT and HVEM stimulate early IFN-? production by type 3 innate lymphoid cells, which are critical for defense against Yersinia enterocolitica. ..

    ..Our findings indicate that hypertranslocation of pore complex proteins promotes inflammasome activation and that YopK prevents inflammasome activation by the T3SS by limiting translocation of YopD and YopB themselves. ..

    ..Deeper understanding of pathogen evasion of inflammasome activation has the potential to lead to development of novel classes of immunomodulatory factors that could be used in the context of human inflammatory diseases. ..

    ..Here, we describe the current state of knowledge on interactions between Yersinia and the inflammasome system, with the goal of integrating these findings within the general framework of inflammasome responses to microbial pathogens. ..

    ..Our findings indicate that lysosomal damage by Yersinia translocon proteins promotes inflammasome activation and implicate GBPs as key regulators of this process. ..
