Abstract/OtherAbstract:
On (cell) suicide watch: The increased permeability of apoptotic cells was used to identify a peptide-based, covalent inhibitor (NJP2) for glutathione S-transferase omega (GSTO1) that is highly selective for apoptotic cells, with no inhibition of healthy cells. This apoptosis-specific peptide could also be used for imaging programmed cell death.
