Abstract

Proinflammatory cytokine TNFalpha triggers cell death by inducing reactive oxygen species (ROS). These then inflict cytotoxicity through downstream activation of the JNK MAPK cascade. Yet the mechanisms by which ROS trigger JNK signaling have remained elusive. In a recent issue of Cell, Kamata et al. now provide one such mechanism.
