Study reveals the protein structure of the human apoptosome

(Boston University Medical Center) Programmed cell death, or apoptosis, plays a central role in the maintenance of human health by providing a line of defense against unrestricted cell growth that occurs in many cancers and AIDS as well as in neurodegenerative diseases and stroke.Researchers from Boston University School of Medicine have for the first time mapped an active human apoptosome.
