The omega-3 (ω3) fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) can suppress inflammation, specifically IL-1β production through poorly understood molecular mechanisms. Here, we show that DHA reduces macrophage IL-1β production by limiting inflammasome activation. Exposure to DHA reduced IL-1β production by ligands that stimulate the NLRP3, AIM2, and NAIP5/NLRC4(More)
Ligand bound chemoattractant receptors activate the heterotrimeric G-protein G(i) to stimulate downstream signaling pathways to properly position lymphocytes in lymphoid organs. Here, we show how variations in the expression of a chemokine receptor and in two components in the signaling pathway, Galpha(i2) and RGS1, affect the output fidelity of the(More)
