The activated caspase-1 (p10/p20) also cleaves pyrin at Asp330, which is located between the bZIP basic domain and the B-box zinc finger domain. The N-terminal cleaved fragment interacts with p65 and IκB-α through the bZIP basic domain and adjacent sequences, respectively, by which NF-κB is activated and the expression of inflammatory genes, including pyrin itself and proIL-1β, is induced. In turn, the inflammation is heightened by the increased mutant pyrin as well as proIL-1β 2 Pathogenesis 27 2.

Indeed, the higher expression level of pyrin has been observed in the leukocytes of FMF patients, whether with one or two demonstrable mutation(s), in comparison with healthy controls [15, 19]. Moreover, a correlation between the level of secreted IL-1β and number of FMF-associated mutations was observed from LPS-treated PBMCs of FMF patients [56]. 9 Conclusion and Future Directions While it would be inaccurate to assert that these lines of experimentation have converged to produce a thorough understanding of pyrin function and the pathogenesis of FMF, at least three major concepts have emerged: 1.
