That naturally occurring cell death in the nervous and other systems is an active and physiologically appropriate process has received much attention recently and has gained a significant degree of acceptance. The identification of cell death genes in invertebrates, the characterization of gene products that function as cell death suppressors, and the demonstration that some proto-oncogenes elicit cell death, as well as proliferation, in certain cell types have heightened interest in the… CONTINUE READING
