Apoptosis proceeds through cleavage of various intracellular proteins. The proteases which mediate this process are referred to as caspases. One important caspase substrate is the intermediate filament protein keratin 18 (K18, Cytokeratin 18 or CK18) (Caulin et al., 1997), expressed in cells of simple epithelia.
