Abstract

All known apoptosis modulators in poxviruses have been shown to function as inhibitors. The mechanistic classes of these poxvirus-encoded inhibitors are quite diverse, and indicate that a wide variety of distinct host proteins in cellular apoptotic pathways have been targeted for inhibition by individual poxviruses.
