The interleukin-1 β-converting enzyme (ICE)-like family proteases have recently been identified as key enzymes in apoptotic cell death. Among these proteases one can identify specific activities which may be involved in cytokine production or in resident protein cleavage. Several factors influence the constitutive apoptotic mechanism and may provide insight… CONTINUE READING
