We deconstruct Eissing's intrinsic apoptosis model using linear control theory. In the life steady state the linearised dynamics are shown to be a tightly coupled but unstable multi- variable system. The life steady state is stabilized biochemically by decentralised XIAP and CARP acting as lead controllers. The small gain theorem is used to analyse stability and to give insight into how the inhibitors naturally modulate cell death and highlighting the role played by positive and negative feedback. Finally we use simulations to examine the extent to which recovery is possible once apoptosis has been initiated.
