The many faces of Cell Death
Important advances have been made in this area of Biology. Cell death is necessary during several normal cellular processes, however too much or too little cell death promotes or causes disease like cancer. The most studied mechanisms of cell death are apoptosis, necrosis, and autophagy. As research in this field progresses new variations of cell death are being documented. This review focuses on the major ways the cell dies and the interactions among them.
