Processing of caspases is required for activation of downstream signaling and dsRNA stimulation inducese the processing of these caspases. The nonapoptotic caspase function of both caspase-8 and -10 does not require the protease activity and the DED-containing prodomains are sufficient for NF-kB activation.
