These nuclear changes are now among the hallmarks of what is now known as "apoptosis" as recognized by Wyllie and colleagues as a general characteristic of "natural" death [4, 5]. Perforin/granzyme mechanism of apoptosis Classical CD8+ CTL have at least three important mechanisms of inducing apoptosis. Discussed in order these are: the perforinlgranzyme system [6]; FaslFas ligand (FasL) [7]; and TNF (tumor necrosis factor)ffNF receptor (TNFR) [8]. The mechanism responsible for the majority of the rapid lytic activity observed in standard culture assays is the perforin/granzyme system.
