Osteoblasts Express NLRP3, a Nucleotide-Binding Domain and Leucine-Rich Repeat Region Containing Receptor Implicated in Bacterially Induced Cell Death
Bacterially induced osteoblast apoptosis may be a major contributor to bone loss during osteomyelitis. We provide evidence for the functional expression in osteoblasts of NLRP3, a member of the NLR family of cytosolic receptors that has been implicated in the initiation of programmed cell death
