Wild type p53-induced phosphatase 1 (Wip1) is a phosphatase which belongs to protein phosphatase type 2C family, which have been predominantly linked to cell growth and to cellular stress signaling. Numerous downstream targets of Wip1 have been identified, and genetic studies confirm that some play a part in tumorigenesis. Recent evidence highlights a new(More)
Uncontrolled endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress responses are proposed to contribute to the pathology of chronic inflammatory diseases such as type 2 diabetes or atherosclerosis. However, the connection between ER stress and inflammation remains largely unexplored. Here, we show that ER stress causes activation of the NLRP3 inflammasome, with subsequent(More)
