Frontiers in cell apoptosis research.


Frontiers in cell apoptosis research.

Regulated cell death is a complex process that includes active participation in affected cells in their own self-destruction. This process is essential in development of the embryo and the immune system, as well as in balancing cell numbers in continuously renewing tissues. These nine papers address classic issues in cell apoptosis from the last few years, including the pro-and anti-apoptotic role of ubiquinone, cytochemical and apoptotic markers of tissue remodeling, chemical messengers as male germ cell apoptosis inducers, apoptosis in human ejaculated spermatozoa, reactive oxygen species-mediated apoptosis, photoinduced apaptosis by photosensitizer drugs, apoptosis during pregnancy and a paper that takes the position that snake-like chromatin is not a form of apoptosis. Another paper describes taking research in apoptosis from the lab to clinical applications.
