Caspase activation has been frequently viewed as synonymous with apoptotic cell death; however, caspases can also contribute to processes that do not culminate in cell demise. Moreover, inhibition of caspases can have cytoprotective effects. In a number of different models, caspase inhibition does not maintain cellular viability and instead shifts the morphology of death from apoptosis to nonapoptotic pathways. Here, we explore the contribution of caspases to cell death, either as upstream… Expand
Cell Death Independent of Caspases: A Review
TLDR
The various models of PCD and their death pathways at molecular and organelle level are reviewed and the relevance of the growing knowledge of caspase-independent cell death pathways for cancer is discussed. Expand
A perspective on mammalian caspases as positive and negative regulators of inflammation.
TLDR
This work proposes an alternative perspective on apoptosis-associated caspase function by suggesting that these proteases are activated, not to kill, but to extinguish the proinflammatory properties of dying cells. Expand
Caspase-Independent Cell Death Mechanisms in Simple Animal Models
TLDR
This chapter surveys caspase-independent cell death mechanisms in two invertebrate animal models, the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans and the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster, and highlights common elements among different instances of cell demise, which point to evolutionarily conserved death mechanisms.

Mitochondrial regulation of cell death.
  • S. Tait, D. Green
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Cold Spring Harbor perspectives in biology
  • 2013
TLDR
The mechanisms underlying mitochondrial permeabilization are discussed and how this key event leads to cell death through caspase-dependent and -independent means, and how the release of mitochondrial proteins may be regulated following MOMP is explored. Expand
Apoptosis effector mechanisms: A requiem performed in different keys
TLDR
The molecular regulation of caspases and various caspase-independent effectors of apoptosis are discussed, the potential context and/or limitations of these mechanisms are described, and why the understanding of these processes may have relevance in cancer where treatment is believed to engage apoptosis to destroy tumor cells. Expand
Autophagy exacerbates caspase-dependent apoptotic cell death after short times of starvation.
TLDR
It is found that a concomitant depletion of glucose, nutrients and growth factors provoked cell death in a variety of cell lines and was contingent upon caspase activation and was mediated by BAX/BAK proteins, thus indicating its apoptotic nature and the engagement of an intrinsic pathway. Expand
New Advance in Caspase-Independent Programmed Cell Death and its Potential in Cancer Therapy

TLDR
It is clear that a full understanding of the regulation of caspase-independent PCcD could provide new means of improving current diagnosis and promoting conceptual advances for the design of new therapeutic strategies for cancer therapy. Expand
Cell death by necrosis: towards a molecular definition.
TLDR
Because necrosis is prominent in ischemia, trauma and possibly some forms of neurodegeneration, further biochemical comprehension and molecular definition of this process could have important clinical implications. Expand
Mitochondrial factors with dual roles in death and survival
TLDR
A growing body of new evidence suggests that cell death regulators also have ‘day jobs’ in healthy cells and caspases, mitochondrial fission proteins and pro-death Bcl-2 family proteins appear to have normal cellular functions that promote cell survival. Expand
Pathways to caspase activation
TLDR
The current understanding of several pathways to activate caspases and some key proteins related to these pathways are discussed, which are essential for tissue homeostasis. Expand

Death without caspases, caspases without death.
TLDR
It is suggested that cellular context plays an important role in defining the consequences of caspase activation and, instead, might be important for cell differentiation. Expand
Do inducers of apoptosis trigger caspase-independent cell death?
TLDR
Recent findings are presented and the physiological relevance of caspase-independent cell death is discussed, which indicates that a cell that has been treated with an apoptotic inducer can also initiate a suicide programme that does not rely on caspases. Expand
Caspase-independent cell death in T lymphocytes
TLDR
Damage of organelles including mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum or lysozymes, leading to an increase in calcium and reactive oxygen species and the release of effector proteins, is frequently involved in caspase-independent cell death. Expand

Recent progress in understanding the biochemical mechanisms and regulation of the caspase activation pathway, the roles of the pathway in physiology and disease, and their potential therapeutic values are focused on. Expand
Requirement for Caspase-2 in Stress-Induced Apoptosis Before Mitochondrial Permeabilization
TLDR
It is argued that cytokine-induced and stress-induced apoptosis act through conceptually similar pathways in which mitochondria are amplifiers of caspase activity rather than initiators of cospase activation. Expand
Apoptosis-inducing factor is involved in the regulation of caspase-independent neuronal cell death
TLDR
It is demonstrated that p53 can induce neuronal cell death via a caspase-mediated process activated by apoptotic activating factor-1 (Apaf1) and via a delayed onset casp enzyme-independent mechanism, and that apoptosis-inducing factor (AIF) is an important factor involved in the regulation of this caspases-independent neuronal cellDeath.

Cathepsin B Acts as a Dominant Execution Protease in Tumor Cell Apoptosis Induced by Tumor Necrosis Factor
TLDR
Cathepsin B, which is commonly overexpressed in human primary tumors, may have two opposing roles in malignancy, reducing it by its proapoptotic features and enhancingIt by its known facilitation of invasion. Expand

Caspases: the enzymes of death.
The caspases are a unique family of cysteine proteases, which cleave proteins next to an aspartate residue. Among all known mammalian proteases, only the serine protease granzyme B has similarExpand
Caspase-8 Serves Both Apoptotic and Nonapoptotic Roles1
TLDR
Caspase-8 deletion in bone-marrow cells resulted in arrest of hemopoietic progenitor functioning, and in cells of the myelomonocytic lineage, its deletion led to arrest of differentiation into macrophages and to cell death. Expand
