From: The IL-1/IL-1 receptor axis and tumor cell released inflammasome adaptor ASC are key regulators of TSLP secretion by cancer associated fibroblasts in pancreatic cancer

Tumor cell-derived ASC induces IL-1β secretion by macrophages and indirectly TSLP secretion by CAFs. a IL-1β secretion by THP-1 cells in the presence of the indicated stimuli, i.e. none (NT), PMA alone, PMA + LPS, PMA+ tumor cell sup (untreated sup), ASC-depleted or iso-rab-depleted tumor cell sups. The experiments were performed with BxPC3 (left) and A8184 (right) cell lines. Error bars represent standard deviations of triplicate values. Significance was determined using Students’ t test. b Cumulative results of independent experiments (each symbol refers to a single experiment). Percentage of inhibition was calculated on the values of THP1 in the presence of untreated sup. Significance was determined using paired Students’ t test. c IL-1β secretion by THP-1 cells in the presence of the indicated stimuli, i.e. none (NT), PMA alone, PMA + LPS, the supernatant (sup) of tumor cells (BxPC3 and A8184) either mock transfected (mock sup) or transfected with negative control siRNA (neg ctrl siRNA) or ASC siRNA. Error bars represent standard deviations of triplicate values. Significance was determined using Students’ t test. d Cumulative results of independent experiments (each symbol refers to a single experiment). Percentage of inhibition was calculated on the values of THP1 in the presence of mock-sup. Significance was determined using paired Students’ t test. e TSLP secretion by CAFs stimulated with the supernatant of THP1 cells treated with the supernatant of the indicated tumor cell lines (BxPC-3 and A8184) either mock transfected (mock sup) or transfected with control siRNA (neg ctrl sup) or ASC siRNA sup (n = 3). Error bars represent standard deviations of triplicate values. Significance was determined using unpaired Students’ t test. Values significantly different were indicated as: *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01 and ***p < 0.001
