Cytochrome c release from mitochondria: all or nothing.

Abstract

During the process of apoptosis, cytochrome c is released from mitochondria into the cytosol where it helps to activate the caspases, a family of killer proteases. The release of cytochrome c is a rapid, complete and kinetically invariant event.
