Apoptosis is a highly regulated cellular suicide program crucial for metazoan development. Yeast counterparts of central metazoan apoptotic regulators, such as metacaspase Yca1p, have been identified. In spite of the importance of Yca1p in yeast apoptotic process, many other factors such as Aif1p, orthologs of EndoG, AMID and cyclophilin D play important roles in caspase-independent apoptotic pathways. This review summarized recent progress about studies of various intrinsic and extrinsic… CONTINUE READING
