    TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL/ Apo-2L) is a member of the TNF family of apoptosis-inducing proteins that initiates apoptosis in a variety of neoplastic cells while displaying minimal or absent cytotoxicity to most normal cells. Therefore, TRAIL is currently considered a promising...

    Loss of function of the retinoblastoma protein, pRB, leads to lack of differentiation, hyperproliferation and apoptosis. Inactivation of pRB results in deregulated E2F activity, which in turn induces entry to S-phase and apoptosis. Induction of apoptosis by either the loss of pRB or the...

  • Bid, a critical mediator for apoptosis induced by the activation of Fas/TNF-R1 death receptors in hepatocytes. Yin, Xiao-Ming // Journal of Molecular Medicine;Jun2000, Vol. 78 Issue 4, p203 

    The Bcl-2 family proteins consist of both anti-apoptosis and pro-apoptosis members that regulate apoptosis typically at the mitochondrial level, mainly by controlling the release of cytochrome c and other mitochondrial apoptotic events. However, death signals mediated by Fas/TNF-R1 receptors can...

  • In situ trapping of activated initiator caspases reveals a role for caspase-2 in heat shock-induced apoptosis. Shine Tu; McStay, Gavin P.; Boucher, Louis-Martin; Mak, Tak; Beere, Helen M.; Green, Douglas R. // Nature Cell Biology;Jan2006, Vol. 8 Issue 1, p72 

    Activation of 'initiator' (or 'apical') caspases-2, -8 or -9 (refs 1–3) is crucial for induction of apoptosis. These caspases function to activate executioner caspapses that, in turn, orchestrate apoptotic cell death. Here, we show that a cell-permeable, biotinylated pan-caspase inhibitor...

    The article presents information on the effect of chronic stress over the progression of prostate cancer. It mentions signaling and biological processes of stress hormones which in turn leads to evasion of tumor cell from apoptosis. It also states mechanisms which helps prostate cancer cells to...

  • Caspase 9.  // Encyclopedic Reference of Cancer;2001, p168 

    A definition of the term "caspase 9" is presented. It is involved in the activation cascade of caspases in apoptosis. Its binding to APAF-1 leads to activation of the protease, which in turn cleaves and activates caspase 3 poly ADP-ribose polymerase. It is a heterodimer of 35 kD and 10 kD and is...
