NAIP inflammasomes give the NOD to bacterial ligands.
NLRs are innate immune sensors that monitor the sanctity of the cytosolic compartment. In a recent paper in Molecular Cell, Tenthorey et al. reveal a novel ligand-sensing interface within regions of the oligomerization domain of the NAIPs, rather than within the leucine-rich repeats, as was anticipated.
