Neuroinflammation is associated with the occurrence and progression of Parkinson’s disease (PD). Nucleotide-binding domain-like receptor protein-3 (NLRP3) is closely related to pyroptosis in PD-related cells and animal models, such as microglia and SH-SY5Y cells. The novel lncRNA ZFAS1 (LncZFAS1) regulates a variety of signaling pathways and participates in the inflammatory response in various diseases. However, their role in PD remains unclear. Our research found LncZFAS1 overexpression directly interfered with mir590-3p to inhibit thioredoxin-interacting protein (TXNIP) the Mindbomb 1 (MIB1) E3 ubiquitin ligase/NLRP3 pathway, which might reveal a new research approach to the mechanism of PD.
