Nod proteins can detect peptidoglycan fragments produced in host phagosome or phagolysosomeduring degradation of phagocytosed bacteria. The nature of the transporters involved in the translocation of peptidoglycan from the phagolysosome tothe cytosol remains unknown. Peptidoglycan fragments in the extracellular milieu can also enter cells by endocytosis. In HEK293T cells, peptidoglycanfragments translocate to the cytosol at least in part through the oligopeptide transporter SLC15A4. Nod proteins interact with membrane-associatedproteins GEF-H1, Erbin, as well as Rac1 and Duox2 from the NADPH oxidase complex. Nod1 and Nod2 also detect invading bacteria and trigger therecruitment of the autophagic machinery (see also Figure 3).would be that NLRP proteins could directly detect this, NLRC4 has been recently shown to detect directlymembrane damage or leakage.

  4. 4. Sentinels at host membranes Philpott and Girardin 431Figure 2Activation of the inflammasome-triggering NLR proteins at host membranes. Bacterial processing in phagosome or phagolysosome generatesmolecules (including peptidoglycan and flagellin) that translocate to the cytosol and trigger the caspase-1 inflammasome through NLRP3 and NLRC4/NAIP5, respectively. NLRC4 also detects the structure of the type three secretion system (TTSS) inserted into the host membrane. A large variety ofmolecules can also traffic through the host endocytic machinery to trigger NLRP3 and NLRP1 (see text for details). In this case, the mechanismunderlying inflammasome activation is not fully elucidated but is thought to involve NADPH oxidase-generated reactive oxygen species (ROS) or thedamage to the lysosomal membrane and the release of cathepsin B (cat B). Finally, potassium efflux (that can be triggered by the binding of ATP to thepurinergic receptors of the P2X family) also triggers NLRP3 through a mechanism likely involving ROS generation.been proposed that NLRX1 could interact with the detected by NLR proteins [37,38].

Recently, the NLR and for subsequent optimal antigen presentation on the major histocompatibility (MHC) complex II [46].Figure 3 Concluding remarks The functional importance of NLRs as cytosolic sentinels of the innate immune system at the vicinity of host membranes is an emerging concept that is supported by numerous experimental evidence, as presented in this review. Linking NLR activation to host membrane patrolling likely confers two main advantages: (i) it allows safe and rapid response to microbes and danger, since cytosolic threats necessarily need to cross at least one host membrane, and membrane rupture, damage or electro- chemical alteration are common events triggered by bacteria, viruses, parasites or danger signals. (ii) It allows NLR activation in a restricted area of the cell where signals to be detected (ROS, K+ efflux, microbial motifs translocated through a specific secretion system, material released from the lysosome) display their highest con- centration, thus ensuring the activation threshold is effi- ciently met. This last point likely explains how Nod1 can induce innate immune response to extracellular bacterial pathogens [47,48], or direct the recruitment of the autop- hagic machinery at the site of bacterial entry, when bacteria are still extracellular [6].
