At weaning, milk producing mammary epithelial cells undergo apoptosis and are removed by phagocytosis. Here, we show that mouse mammary gland involution is associated with mitochondrial cytochrome c release and processing of numerous caspases, including caspase-1, -3, -7, -8 and -9. Induction of caspase-3-like activity paralleled cleavage of(More)
