ASC (adaptor protein apoptosis-associated speck-like protein containing a CARD) is a pro-apoptotic protein containing a pyrin domain (PD) and a caspase-recruitment domain (CARD). ASC with its PD domain physically interacts with caspase-8. Formation of the MALT1–caspase-8 complex is a prerequisite for the association of caspase-8 with ASC. ASC is necessary for the recruitment of pro-IL1B into the proximity of activated caspase-8 (Gringhuis et al. 2012).
