Method to Measure Ubiquitination of NLRs.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Posttranslational modifications are crucial in determining the functions of proteins in the cell. Modification of the NLRP3 inflammasome by the ubiquitin system has recently emerged as a new level of regulation of the inflammasome complex. Here, we describe a method to detect polyubiquitination of NRLP3 using two different approaches: (1) detection with an ubiquin antibody or (2) using TUBE (Tandem Ubiquitin Binding entities). This approach can be used to detect ubiquitination of other NLR or other components of the inflammasome.
