Resumo

NK cells are innate lymphoid cells that exert a key role in immune surveillance through the recognition and elimination of transformed cells and viral, bacterial, and protozoan pathogen-infected cells without prior sensitization. Elucidating when and how NK cell-induced intracellular microbial cell death functions in the resolution of infection and host inflammation has been an important topic of investigation. NK cell activation requires the engagement of specific activating, co-stimulatory, and inhibitory receptors which control positively and negatively their differentiation, memory, and exhaustion. NK cells secrete diverse cytokines, including IFN-gamma, TNF-alpha/beta, CD95/FasL, and TRAIL, as well as cytoplasmic cytotoxic granules containing perforin, granulysin, and granzymes A and B. Paradoxically, NK cells also kill other immune cells like macrophages, dendritic cells, and hyper-activated T cells, thus turning off self-immune reactions. Here we first provide an overview of NK cell biology, and then we describe and discuss the life-death signals that connect the microbial pathogen sensors to the inflammasomes and finally to cell death signaling pathways. We focus on caspase-mediated cell death by apoptosis and pro-inflammatory and non-caspase-mediated cell death by necroptosis, as well as inflammasome- and caspase-mediated pyroptosis. (AU)
