Revision26-April-2010 RFH
DescriptionApoptosis is a normal process in development and morphogenesis. Many cells can be activated to undergo apoptosis following the interaction of selected ligands with cell surface receptors. Receptor-mediated apoptosis involves the activation of caspases (cysteine-containing aspartate-specific proteases). A distinctive feature of caspases is the requirement of an aspartic acid residue in the substrate P1 position.

Caspase inhibitors act by binding to the active site of caspases and form either a reversible or an irreversible linkage. Caspase inhibitor design includes a peptide recognition sequence attached to a functional group such as an aldehyde (CHO), chloromethylketone (CMK), fluoromethylketone (FMK), or fluoroacyloxymethylketone (FAOM). Caspase inhibitors with a CHO group are reversible and those with a CMK, FMK, or FAOM group are irreversible and cell-permeable. FMK exhibits slightly less reactivity than CMK and therefore is more specific for the enzyme being inhibited.
