A multiprotein complex, the formation of which is triggered by cytochrome c released from mitochondria which binds Apaf-1. The cytochrome-Apaf complex then recruits procaspase-9 which, when activated, starts the caspase cascade. XIAP binds to the caspase 9 and inhibits further proteolytic activity.
