Expression, proteolysis and activation of caspases 6 and 7 during rat C6 glioma cell apoptosis.

Abstract

Activation of cysteinyl aspartate-specific proteases (caspases) may underlie apoptotic cell death in brain. Terminal, executioner caspases 3, 6 and 7 likely contribute to such cell death in a stimulus- and cell type-specific manner. Here we investigate the processing and activation of caspases 3, 6 and 7 in rat C6 glioma cells induced to undergo apoptosis… (More)
