NF-κB Signals Induce the Expression of c-FLIP
It is shown that NF-κB activation upregulates the caspase 8 inhibitor FLIP, resulting in increased resistance to Fas ligand (FasL) or TNF, and suggest that FLIP is an important mediator of NF-σκB-controlled antiapoptotic signals.
Caspase-8 activity has an essential role in CD95/Fas-mediated MAPK activation
The combination of biochemical analysis with mathematical modeling provides evidence for an important role of caspase-8 in CD95-mediated activation of MAPKs, while c-FLIP exerts a regulatory function in this process.
Antioxidant c-FLIP Inhibits Fas Ligand-Induced NF-κB Activation in a Phosphatidylinositol 3-Kinase/Akt-Dependent Manner
The presence of two death effector domains of c-FLIP and S-nitrosylation of its caspase-like domain were found to be important for mediating c- FLIP–dependent downregulation of NF-κB activity.
Crosstalk between NF-kappaB-activating and apoptosis-inducing proteins of the TNF-receptor complex.
This review will focus on the crosstalk that exists between proteins of the TNF receptor (TNF-R) signalosome, and which are involved in the initiation of nuclear factor kappa B (NF-kappaB) activation or apoptosis.
Caspase-8 and c-FLIPL Associate in Lipid Rafts with NF-κB Adaptors during T Cell Activation*
A link among TCR, caspases, and the NF-κB pathway that occurs in a sequestered lipid raft environment in T cells is defined.
Regulation of Fas Signaling by FLIP Proteins
Fas is a member of the tumor necrosis factor receptor family that can induce apoptosis by the recruitment and activation of caspase-8 (formerly called FLICE, MACH or MCH-5). Recently, caspase-8/FLICE
The c-FLIPL Cleavage Product p43FLIP Promotes Activation of Extracellular Signal-regulated Kinase (ERK), Nuclear Factor κB (NF-κB), and Caspase-8 and T Cell Survival*
It is demonstrated that acute deletion of endogenous c-FLIP in murine effector T cells results in loss of caspase-8 activity and cell death, which can be rescued by the transgenic expression of p43FLIP, which augments ERK and NF-κB activation, IL-2 production, and T cell proliferation.
MAPK/ERK Overrides the Apoptotic Signaling from Fas, TNF, and TRAIL Receptors*
The results show that ERK1/2 has a dominant protecting effect over apoptotic signaling from the death receptors, which acts in all cases by suppressing activation of the caspase effector machinery.
Death Receptor-Induced Signaling Pathways Are Differentially Regulated by Gamma Interferon Upstream of Caspase 8 Processing
It is shown that IFN-γ sensitizes KB cells for apoptosis induction by facilitating death-inducing signaling complex (DISC)-mediated caspase 8 processing and Fas- and TRAIL death receptor-mediated NF-κB activation leading to synergistic upregulation of a variety of proinflammatory genes.


The Role of c-FLIP in Modulation of CD95-induced Apoptosis*
It is shown that c-FLIP is expressed in two isoforms, both of which, like FADD and caspase-8, are recruited to the CD95 DISC in a stimulation-dependent fashion and inhibits CD95-mediated apoptosis.
Inhibition of death receptor signals by cellular FLIP
The characterization of an inhibitor of apoptosis is reported, designated FLIP (for FLICE-inhibitory protein), which is predominantly expressed in muscle and lymphoid tissues and may be implicated in tissue homeostasis as an important regulator of apoptotic regulation.
Apoptosis signaling by death receptors.
The current and rapidly expanding knowledge about the biological functions of death receptors and the mechanisms to trigger or to counteract cell death are summarized.
Inhibition of fas death signals by FLIPs.
Fas-mediated apoptosis and activation-induced T-cell proliferation are defective in mice lacking FADD/Mort1
The results and the similarities between FADD−/− mice and mice lacking the β-subunit of the IL-2 receptor suggest that there is an unexpected connection between cell proliferation and apoptosis.
IKK-1 and IKK-2: Cytokine-Activated IκB Kinases Essential for NF-κB Activation
Activation of the transcription factor nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB) is controlled by sequential phosphorylation, ubiquitination, and degradation of its inhibitory subunit IκB. A large multiprotein
Cell death attenuation by `Usurpin', a mammalian DED-caspase homologue that precludes caspase-8 recruitment and activation by the CD-95 (Fas, APO-1) receptor complex
Usurpin appears to be an endogenous modulator of apoptosis sensitivity in mammalian cells, including the susceptibility of cardiac myocytes to apoptotic death following ischemia/ reperfusion injury.
MyD88, an Adapter Protein Involved in Interleukin-1 Signaling*
A role for MyD88 as an adapter in IL-1 signal transduction is supported; MyD 88 forms homodimers in vivo through DD-DD and Toll-Toll interactions.
