Caspases, a group of cysteine proteases, constitute the effector arm of the cell death machinery. There are seven caspases known in Drosophila, three of which contain long amino-terminal prodomains. Although, compared to mammalian caspases, much less is known about the biology of Drosophila caspases, many studies have shown that caspases are essential for programmed cell death in the fly and are likely to be regulated in ways similar to their mammalian counterparts. Studies on fly caspases have… CONTINUE READING
