A kinase gets caspases into shape.

Two new papers (Kuranaga et al., 2006; Oshima et al., 2006) describe a previously uncharacterized Drosophila kinase (DmIKK epsilon) that regulates the abundance of DIAP1, a protein best known for its ability to inhibit apoptosis. However, DmIKK epsilon- mediated degradation of DIAP1 does not regulate apoptosis as might be predicted but instead regulates actin dynamics, cell morphology, and the differentiation of sensory organ precursor cells.[1]
