The present review summarizes findings on stress-induced cell death in the IPLB-LdFB insect cell line derived from the larval fat body of the lepidopteron Lymantria dispar. Apoptotic, oncotic and autophagic cell death have been described in these cells as a consequence of oxidative stress or ATP deprivation, and similarities between IPLB-LdFB and mammalian apoptotic pathways have been highlighted. Furthermore, starting from observations in the IPLB-LdFB cells, a link has been surmised between… 
New insights into autophagic cell death in the gypsy moth Lymantria dispar: a proteomic approach
Autophagy is an evolutionary ancient process based on the activity of genes conserved from yeast to metazoan taxa. Whereas its role as a mechanism to provide energy during cell starvation is commonly
Autophagy in Lepidoptera: more than old wine in new bottle
The use of moths and butterflies as models for tudying the roles and regulation of autophagy is discussed and insights into the cooperation between utophagy and apoptosis in cell death events that occur in lepidopteran in vivo and in vitro systems are given.
A Molecular View of Autophagy in Lepidoptera
A new era of research on autophagy is entering that foreshadows clarification of the role and regulatory mechanisms underlying this self-digesting process in Lepidoptera, given that some of the most important lepidopteran species of high economic importance, such as the silkworm, Bombyx mori, belong to this insect order.
Autophagy and its physiological relevance in arthropods: Current knowledge and perspectives
The genetic basis and the physiological meaning of the autophagic process on key models of arthropods are focused on and the involvement of autophagy in programmed cell death, especially during oogenesis and development is discussed.
The multifaceted activity of insect caspases.
Targets and Effects of Yessotoxin, Okadaic Acid and Palytoxin: A Differential Review
This review focuses on processes, organs and systems targeted by the marine toxins yessotoxin, okadaic acid (OA) and palytoxin (PTX), and OA and PTX, two toxins with a better established mode of action, are analyzed with regard to their effects on development.
Thymic Maturation and Programmed Cell Death
It could be suggested that fat accumulation in the thymic stroma might not be considered a passive, deleterious consequence of aging, but instead a potential source of molecules with various biological functions in terms of energy expenditure and trade off, tissue homeostasis, immune defence and disease escape.
