Abstract

Assembly of the ASC speck is critical for signaling by the inflammasome. In this issue, Kuri et al. (2017. J. Cell Biol. https://doi.org/10.1083/jcb.201703103) use live microscopy to track fluorescently tagged endogenous ASC in the zebrafish, describing the molecular domains driving ASC speck assembly and identifying a key role for macrophages in ASC speck removal in vivo.
