Cell Death Differ.
Cell death attenuation by 'usurpin', a mammalian DED-caspase homologue that precludes caspase-8 recruitment and activation by the CD-95 (Fas, APO-1) receptor complex
Rasper, D.M., Vaillancourt, J.P., Hadano, S., Houtzager, V.M., Seiden, I., Keen, S.L.C., Tawa, P., Xanthoudakis, S., Nasir, J., Martindale, D., Koop, B.F., Peterson, E.P., Thornberry, N.A., Huang, J., MacPherson, D.P., Black, S.C., Hornung, F., Lenardo, M.J., Hayden M.R. , Roy, S., Nicholson, D.W.
Notes: The CellTiter 96® Non-Radioactive Cell Proliferation Assay (MTT) was used to monitor the number of viable HeLa cells following exposure to an Anti-Fas antibody. HeLa cells stably transfected with usurpin lacking the DED domain were viable at higher doses of the anti-fas antibody than control cells. (0500)
