Caspase-mediated cleavage of cytoskeletal proteins (R-HSA-264870) [Homo sapiens]


Caspase-mediated cleavage of a number of proteins in the cortical actin network ( ) microfilament system and others involved in maintenance of the cytoskeletal architecture (vimentin, or Gas2 and plectin) may directly contribute to apoptotic changes in cell shape.
