Hepatitis C virus core protein induces apoptosis-like caspase independent cell death

Abstract

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) associated liver diseases may be related to apoptotic processes. Thus, we investigated the role of different HCV proteins in apoptosis induction as well as their potency to interact with different apoptosis inducing agents. The use of a tightly adjustable tetracycline (Tet)-dependent HCV protein expression cell system with the… (More)
