Molecular "Gateways to Death" Identified

HHMI researchers have identified two key components of what are likely the
"gateways to death" in the membranes of the cell's mitochondria. When cell
death signals are received by the mitochondria, these gateway proteins are
believed to form pores in the mitochondrial membranes that allow molecules
to pass into the cell, generating a cascade of biochemical reactions that
causes cell death.

Research published in the April 27, 2001, issue of the journal Science.
