MCQ on Caspases in Apoptosis




Caspases are a family of enzymes that play a central role in apoptosis, the programmed cell death process. They act as proteases, cleaving specific cellular proteins and leading to the dismantling and degradation of the cell. Caspases are typically activated in response to various signals and are involved in maintaining tissue homeostasis and eliminating damaged or unwanted cells. This MCQ on Caspases in Apoptosis will help you to understand the importance of these proteins in both Intrinsic and Extrinsic Pathways of Apoptosis.
