In short, alterations of p53 and certain Bcl-2 family members are clearly capable of altering long-term survival after drug treatment in some model systems in vitro and in vivo. There is currently less evidence that overexpression of XIAP or downregulation Chapter 1 / The Intrinsic Pathway of Apoptosis 19 of Apaf-1, caspase-9, or the effector caspases modulates long-term sensitivity of cells to anticancer drugs, particularly in vivo. On the contrary, recent evidence suggests that changes in the intrinsic pathway beyond the mitochondrial permeabilization step (Figs.
