Principles and mechanisms of CD95 activation.
In Biol Chem, 2014
Moreover, the research on CD95-induced cell death fostered various other discoveries of broad and general relevance in cell biology, for example, the identification of caspase 8 as the initiator caspase of the extrinsic apoptosis pathway.
A long-awaited merger of the pathways mediating host defence and programmed cell death.
New York City, United States. In Nat Rev Immunol, 2014
Molecules such as receptor-interacting protein kinase 1 (RIPK1), RIPK3, FAS-associated death domain protein (FADD), FLICE-like inhibitory protein (FLIP) and caspase 8 - which are associated with different forms of cell death - are incorporated into compatible and exceedingly dynamic Toll-like receptor, NOD-like receptor and RIG-I-like receptor signalling modules.

The molecular basis for A20's hepatoprotective functions were partially resolved and include blockade of NF-kappaB activation in support of its anti-inflammatory function, inhibition of pro-caspase 8 cleavage in support of its anti-apoptotic function, increasing Peroxisome Proliferator Activated Receptor alpha (PPARalpha) expression in support of its anti-oxidant function, and decreasing Cyclin Dependent Kinase Inhibitor p21 while boosting IL-6/STAT3 proliferative signals as part of its pro-regenerative function.
