In vitro studies using purified NLRP1 and caspase-1 suggest that MDP induces a conformational change in NLRP1 that allows it to bind nucleotides and oligomerize, creating a binding platform for caspase-1 (Faustin et al. 2008). There is no direct evidence that NLRP1 binds MDP so the mechanism that stimulates NLRP1 is unclear.
