Mechanisms of apoptosis in Crustacea: what conditions induce versus suppress cell death?

  title={Mechanisms of apoptosis in Crustacea: what conditions induce versus suppress cell death?},
  author={Michael A Menze and Grady Fortner and Suman Nag and S. C. Hand},
Arthropoda is the largest of all animal phyla and includes about 90% of extant species. Our knowledge about regulation of apoptosis in this phylum is largely based on findings for the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. Recent work with crustaceans shows that apoptotic proteins, and presumably mechanisms of cell death regulation, are more diverse in arthropods than appreciated based solely on the excellent work with fruit flies. Crustacean homologs exist for many major proteins in the apoptotic… CONTINUE READING
