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.
The human anti-apoptotic proteins cIAP1 and cIAP2 bind but do not inhibit caspases.
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.
2007), mientras que las proteinas Smac/Diablo y HtrA2/Om promueven apoptosis por inhibicion de IAP (inhibidores de proteinas apoptoticas) como cIAP1, cIAP2 y XIAP (Elmore, 2007; Huerta et al.
Como ya mencionamos, Smac/DIABLO, puede liberar a las procaspasas de la influencia inhibidora de las IAP, como XIAP (proteina inhibidora de apoptosis ligada al X), CIAP1 (proteina inhibidora de apoptosis celular 1), CIAP2 (proteina inhibidora de apoptosis celular 2) y NIAP (proteina inhibidora de apoptosis neuronal), para que sean activadas por auto catalisis.
