Two signals are required for NLRP3 inflammasome activation. Signal 1, also known as the priming signal, is mediated by microbial ligands recognised by TLRs or cytokines such as TNF-α which activate the NF-κB pathway, leading to upregulation of pro-IL-1β and NLRP3 protein levels (Bauernfeind et al. 2009, Jo et al. 2016).
