Targeted Disruption of the Mouse Caspase 8 Gene
Ablates Cell Death Induction by the TNF Receptors,
Fas/Apo1, and DR3 and Is Lethal Prenatally
family that are expressed in the living cell as inactive
precursors and become activated upon death induction.
Once activated, these proteases cleave a specific set of
substrate proteins that act as regulators of the apopto-
tic mechanisms and thus set the apoptotic program in
