Apoptosis, an evolutionarily conserved cell death programme, is a potent barrier against virus infection. Central to this process are mitochondria, which harbour cytochrome c and other apoptosis-inducing factors. Once released, these factors activate a caspase cascade that culminates in cell...
Poxviral manipulation of Bcl-2 proteins: fowlpox virus FPV039 and deerpox virus DPV022 inhibit apoptosis by neutralising Bak and Bax, while Noxa contributes to vaccinia virus-induced apoptosisDownload
Poxviruses are renowned for encoding proteins that modulate virtually every aspect of the host immune system. One effective barrier against virus infection is apoptosis, a form of programmed cell death. Apoptosis is controlled at the mitochondria by pro- and anti-apoptotic members of the highly...
Apoptosis serves as a powerful defense against damaged and unwanted cells. The family of Bcl-2 proteins plays a key role in the regulation of apoptosis at the mitochondria. Members of the Bcl-2 family include pro- and anti-apoptotic members that collectively determine the state of the cell....
