    Caspases are a family of cysteine proteases that have important intracellular roles in inflammation and apoptosis. Caspase-8 activates downstream caspases which are unable to carry out autocatalytic processing and activation. Caspase-8 is designated as an initiator caspase and is believed to sit at the apex of the Fas- or TNF-mediated apoptotic cascade. In view of this role, the enzyme is an attractive target for the design of inhibitors aimed at blocking the undesirable cell death associated with a range of degenerative disorders.
