Activation of DNA-degrading enzymes during apoptosis

Abstract

Cell death by apoptosis requires a precise plan of destruction of DNA and proteins. In this paper, we review the current knowledge on the different DNA-degrading enzymes which are activated in apoptotic cells. The activation of DNases by upstream proteases is also discussed.
