Abstract

Cell competition is a struggle for existence between cells in heterogeneous tissues of multicellular organisms. Loser cells, which die during cell competition, are normally viable when grown only with other loser cells, but when mixed with winner cells, they are at a growth disadvantage and undergo apoptosis.
