Title: Labile zinc and its role in regulation of pro-caspase-3 and NF-kB activation in mast cells / by Lien Ha Ho.
Author: Ho, Lien Ha
Issue Date: 2003
School/Discipline: Dept. of Medicine
Abstract: The aim of this thesis was to further investigate the relationship between Zinquin-detectable intracellular pools of labile Zn and caspase activation since caspases have now been shown to be important effector enzymes in apoptosis. This was largely studied in mast cells and some findings confirmed in neuronal cells, a cell type with quite different function and cell physiology. As a summation of the findings reported in this thesis, a general model is proposed describing possible interactions between Zn, pro-caspases and NF-kB.
