Cadmium triggers kidney cell apoptosis of purse red common carp (Cyprinus carpio) without caspase-8 activation.

Abstract

Caspase-8, the essential initiator caspase, is believed to play a pivotal role in death receptor-mediated apoptotic pathway. It also participates in mitochondria-mediated apoptosis via cleavage of proapoptotic Bid in mammals. However, its role in fish remains elusive in Cadmium-induced apoptotic pathway. In this study, we isolated the caspase-8 gene from… (More)
