Supplementary Material

Online Supplementary Data show a summary of the main drug data, including chemical structure, Molecular Weight, and method of synthesis. Besides, a brief report of previously published in vitro data, showing the specificity of the NLRP3 inflammasome inhibitor, are here reported. Specifically, we show results demonstrating the inhibitory effect of INF4E on pyroptotic cell death and NLRP3 ATPase and Caspase-1 activities. We also show that INF4E does not affect the activation of the Keap1-Nrf2 pathway, which is known to play a major role in cellular defense against oxidants and electrophiles.
