Abstract

Recognition of cytoplasmic lipopolysaccharide (LPS) by caspase-11 leads to pyroptosis and secretion of inflammatory mediators. In this issue of Immunity, Deng et al. (2018) report that high-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) secreted by hepatocytes delivers extracellular LPS into the cytoplasm and mediates pyroptosis.
