Abstract. Cell death may occur by either of two mechanisms: apoptosis or necrosis. Necrosis, the first type of cell death to be recognized, is an uncontrolled degenerative phenomenon invariably caused by noxious stimuli and is the result of irreversible failure of membrane function. Apoptosis, on the other hand, is a death process which involves a series of well‐organized events which require active cell participation, and is primarily caused by physiological stimuli. In the present study we… Expand
Apoptosis induced by cancer chemotherapeutic drugs and its genetic suppression
TLDR
This study has further confirmed that B HRF1 is functionally homologous to bcl-2, suggesting that BHRF1 may act to prevent apoptosis during EBV infection, and represents a novel form of drug resistance and may form an alternative mechanism by which multidrug resistance may arise during chemotherapy. Expand
Apoptosis: Identification of dying cells
TLDR
It is important, however, to discriminate between apoptosis and necrosis in pathological conditions, as therapeutic intervention could be considered in apoptotic cell death with putative new pharmacological agents aimed at interfering with the key molecular events involved. Expand
Heat Shock Proteins in the Regulation of the Apoptotic Response
Cell growth, differentiation and death are highly regulated events during the normal development of cells. Following the pioneering work of Kerr [1], it has become apparent that dying eukaryoticExpand
Oxidative Stress Inhibits Apoptosis in Human Lymphoma Cells*
TLDR
It is found that H2O2 inhibits apoptosis by depleting the cells of ATP, and the results show that oxidants can manipulate cell death pathways, diverting the cell away from apoptosis. Expand
Reasons to reconsider the significance of apoptosis for cancer therapy
  • M. Abend
  • Medicine, Biology
  • International journal of radiation biology
  • 2003
TLDR
It is argued that there are many different forms of cell death that, like apoptosis, are regulated by the cell and how to overcome that limitation has implications for the significance of apoptosis where the diagnosis and prognosis of cancer are concerned. Expand
Signal transduction during apoptosis; implications for cancer therapy.
  • M. Story, R. Kodym
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Frontiers in bioscience : a journal and virtual library
  • 1998
TLDR
In this review, the roles of several genes and gene families considered to be critical to the signal transduction cascade of apoptosis are described and how these genes and their protein products are being used as prognostic indicators for cancer and cancer therapy are discussed. Expand
Inhibition of Drug‐Induced Apoptosis by Survival Factors in PC12 Cells
TLDR
It is shown that the cytotoxic drugs cycloheximide, actinomycin D, colchicine, and EGTA also induce apoptosis in PC12 cells, and results suggest that apoptosis induced by treatments with the various drugs is mediated by different initiating pathways, all of which converge into a final, common pathway.

PROGRAMMED CELL DEATH: CONCEPT, MECHANISM AND CONTROL
  • S. Sen
  • Chemistry, Medicine
  • Biological reviews of the Cambridge Philosophical Society
  • 1992
TLDR
It is becoming evident that signal transduction through appropriate receptors control the Ca2+ flux in the cells, and recent evidences clearly indicate that apoptosis may be positively or negatively modulated by certain genes. Expand
Distinct Modes of Cell Death Induced by Different Reactive Oxygen Species
TLDR
The results suggest that in a physiological milieu in which O 2 − and H2O2 are the main oxidants being formed, the principal form of cell death may be necrotic, and under inflammatory conditions in which HOCl is generated, apoptotic cellDeath may predominate. Expand
The shape of cell death.
TLDR
Increasing evidence suggests that apoptosis and necrosis seem to represent only different shapes of cell demise, resulting from a more or less complete execution of the internal death program. Expand

Induction of apoptosis (programmed cell death) in human leukemic HL-60 cells by inhibition of RNA or protein synthesis.
TLDR
The results suggest that certain dividing cell populations do not require RNA or protein synthesis to undergo apoptosis and further, that continuous transcription and translation of some regulatory protein(s) may be required to maintain control over the apoptotic "machinery" of such cells. Expand
Apoptosis: A Basic Biological Phenomenon with Wide-ranging Implications in Tissue Kinetics
TLDR
Apoptosis seems to be involved in cell turnover in many healthy adult tissues and is responsible for focal elimination of cells during normal embryonic development, and participates in at least some types of therapeutically induced tumour regression. Expand
Cell death: the significance of apoptosis.
TLDR
It has proved feasible to categorize most if not all dying cells into one or the other of two discrete and distinctive patterns of morphological change, which have, generally, been found to occur under disparate but individually characteristic circumstances. Expand
Disruption of microtubules induces an endogenous suicide pathway in human leukaemia HL‐60 cells
TLDR
It is suggested that calcium influx could act at the microtubule level in efTftctino annntnsis, since microtubules are known to be highly sensitive to intracellular calcium fluctuations. Expand
An electron‐microscope study of the mode of cell death induced by cancer‐chemotherapeutic agents in populations of proliferating normal and neoplastic cells
TLDR
Injection of the cancer-chemotherapeutic agents actinomycin D, mitomycin C, cytosine arabinoside and cycloheximide massively enhanced the rate of apoptosis in each situation, the morphology of cell death induced by these drugs being fundamentally different from that of coagulative necrosis, which developed without treatment in the centres of solid nodules that grew after subcutaneous inoculation of the tumour.

HL‐60 cells induced to differentiate towards neutrophils subsequently die via apoptosis
TLDR
The observations further validate the use of the HL‐60 cell line as a model system for the study of human granulopoiesis in vitro and conclude that this model system may be useful for gaining insight into the underlying mechanisms involved in apoptosis. Expand
Endogenous endonuclease-induced DNA fragmentation: an early event in cell-mediated cytolysis.
TLDR
It is found that Zn2+ also inhibits DNA fragmentation and 51Cr release induced by cytotoxic T cells, suggesting a final common biochemical pathway for both types of cell death. Expand
Death and the cell.
TLDR
Edward Duvall and Andrew Wyllie develop the theme that the internal organization and metabolism of nucleated cells determines their mode of death by one or other of two relatively stereotyped patterns, necrosis or apoptosis. Expand
Kinetic and Physical Studies of Cell Death Induced By Chemotherapeutic Agents Or Hyperthermia
TLDR
Measurements of kinetics of cell density, relative cytoplasmic viscosity and DNA stability to denaturation have been measured during the period preceding cell death induced by hyperthermia, methylprednisolone and a series of cancer chemotherapeutic agents suggest that these measurements could readily be applied to cell suspensions derived from tumour tissue biopsies for a more accurate assessment of tumour growth rate.

Calcium-dependent killing of immature thymocytes by stimulation via the CD3/T cell receptor complex.
TLDR
The results suggest that antibody-mediated stimulation of immature thymocytes via the TCR complex results in Ca2+-dependent, endonuclease-mediated cell killing, depending on the activation status of protein kinase C. Expand
