By investigating the role played by cIAP2
in mice with the H1N1 influenza A virus, what Saleh and her team discovered was that the enzyme is necessary to control the nature of cell death during influenza infection.
Our results of weak expression of AIF and HtrA2/Omi in SLL/CLL, combined with previous studies of total lack of Smac/DIABLO expression (9) and variable expression of cIAP1 and cIAP2
in SLL/CLL, (21) appear to support the notion that this lymphoma is characterized by defective apoptosis.
Washington, Jan 16 ( ANI ): Researchers have found a new enzyme, known as cIAP2
, which helps the lungs fight against infection by giving them the ability to decrease flu-inflicted tissue injury.
