Topic: How do cells turn the “apoptotic switch” on?

Host: Xiaodong Wang, Ph.D.

Abstract

How Bax and Bak, the two effectors of mitochondria-dependent apoptosis, are activated has been the subject of an intense debate in the past two decades. We present data to identify the long sought-after direct activator and establish a new model for Bax/Bak activation during apoptosis.
