Abstract

Regulated cell death by apoptosis constitutes a primary host defense for counteracting invading viral pathogens. In recent years, advances in the field of apoptosis research have revealed that mitochondria and mitochondria-derived factors play a central role in regulating cellular commitment to apoptosis. Here we explore the role of viral proteins in modulating cell death pathways that are relayed via this mitochondrial checkpoint.
