Background: The nucleotide-binding and oligomerization domain-like receptor protein 3 (NLRP3) inflammasome composed of NLRP3, apoptosis-associated speck-like protein containing CARD (ASC), and caspase-1 is engaged in the inflammatory response of many kidney diseases and can be activated by purinergic 2X7 receptor (P2X7R).
As a significant signaling molecule, the protein participates in purine salvage and purinergic cascade that triggers cell metabolism.
Females had a higher risk of developing EPTB and the risk of EPTB increased five years after the initial contact.6 The reason for this finding could not be elucidated yet, but endocrine factors may be responsible for this circumstance.4 Moreover, loss of function polymorphism in the purinergic receptor P2X7 gene increases susceptibility to EPTB in patients from Southeast Asia and it suggests that genetic factors may explain some of these differences.12
