Interactions between EV-A71 and inflammasomes. Upon EV-A71 infection, EV-A71 2B and 3D interact NLRP3 to trigger NLRP3 inflammasome activation. AIM2 inflammasome is activated by the transfection of EV71 viral RNA. AIM2 plays a role in the restriction of EV-A71 replication. Meanwhile, EV-A71 viral factors 2A and 3C are shown to counteract NLRP3 inflammasome activation by targeting NLRP3 and GSDMD, respectively
