NF-κB inhibitor - NLRP3 inhibitor

BAY 11-7082 was first described as an irreversible inhibitor of the NF-κB pathway [1]. A number of reports have since shown that BAY 11-7082 has multiple targets, including the NLRP3 inflammasome sensor [2]. BAY11-7082 has been reported to display broad-spectrum anti-inflammatory activities and influence various physiological processes [3, 4]. 

MODES OF ACTION OF BAY 11-7082:

Inhibition of NF-κB translocation into the nucleus: BAY11-7082 inhibits the phosphorylation of IκB-α, which is essential for the release of NF-κB from the cytosolic IκB-α/ NF-κB complex [1]. The transcription factor NF-κB regulates multiple aspects of innate and adaptive immune functions and serves as a pivotal mediator of inflammatory responses.

Inhibition of inflammasome responses: The formation of functional inflammasomes occurs according to a consensual two-step model. The priming step (step 1) induces the  NF-κB-dependent transcription of pro-IL-1β and of NLRP3 sensor. The activation step (step 2) triggers the multimerization of the activated sensor with ASC and pro-caspase-1 molecules. This assembly allows caspase-1 self-activation, which in turn induces the maturation and secretion of IL-1β and IL-18 cytokines, along with alarmins, and a pyroptotic cell death driven by the formation of Gasdermin D (GSDMD) lytic pores at the cell membrane. Thus, BAY 11-7082 may inhibit the inflammasome responses indirectly by preventing the nuclear translocation of  NF-κB at the priming step. Moreover, BAY 11-7082 was shown to exhibit direct inhibitory functions on the NLRP3 inflammasome by blocking the sensor's ATPase activity [2].

KEY FEATURES OF BAY 11-7082:

  • Potent inhibitor of NF-κB and the NLRP3 inflammasome
  • Does not inhibit the NLRP1 inflammasome
