Researchers Find Molecular "Brake" to Cell Death
...tosis," he continues. Researchers agree that the seminal
event that leads to initiation of apoptosis is the release of a key protein known as cytochrome c (CC) from a cell's mitochondria, the organelle's energy storehouse. These molecules then bind to another protein called Apaf-1 in the cell cytoplasm, an...
