It is now increasingly accepted that apoptosis may not be the only form of cell death seen in vitro and in vivo; hence there is a need to study novel forms of cell death. The explosion of cell death research that followed the recognition of apoptosis by Kerr and colleagues in the late 1960s completely obscured the fact that apoptosis is not the only form of cell death. Apoptosis manifests itself by cell shrinkage followed by breakup; another form (oncosis) is almost the opposite: it involves… Expand
Methuosis: nonapoptotic cell death associated with vacuolization of macropinosome and endosome compartments.
TLDR
This review summarizes the available information about the distinguishing morphological characteristics and underlying mechanisms of methuosis, and compares and contrast methurosis with other cytopathological conditions in which accumulation of clear cytoplasmic vacuoles is a prominent feature. Expand
Apoptosis and Other Alternate Mechanisms of Cell Death
TLDR
Overall, cell death have clarified many aspects of this fundamental process and brought to the attention of scientists its role in a large number of different diseases. Expand
Chapter 1 – Molecular Mechanisms of Cell Death
Cell death is a fundamental pathophysiological process and also an essential event in normal life and development. Although many stimuli cause death of cells, the mode of cell death typically followsExpand
Flow Cytometry Reveals the Nature of Oncotic Cells
TLDR
The flow cytometric analysis of the intracellular antigens involved in regulated cell death (RCD) revealed the phenotypic nature of cells undergoing oncosis or necrosis and highlighted the link between ACD and the RCD processes of programmed apoptosis and necrosis. Expand
Cell Injury and Necrosis
TLDR
A comprehensive overview on recent advances in understanding of cell death and regulated cell death modalities is presented, with emphasis on necroptosis and its emerging role in biology, toxicology, and medicine as a new potential cytoprotective approach for therapeutic interventions is discussed. Expand
Neuronal cell death: an overview of its different forms in central and peripheral neurons.
TLDR
The main histological and ultrastructural features of the different types of cell death in neurons are described and related to the cellular pathways that are specifically activated in any of these types of PCD. Expand
Induction of programmed necrosis: A novel anti-cancer strategy for natural compounds.
TLDR
Noptosis, which is a novel type of programmed necrosis that is strictly dependent on NAD(P)H: quinone oxidoreductase 1-derived oxidative stress was proposed and the main concerns from the scientific community in this regard were discussed. Expand
An Early and Robust Activation of Caspases Heads Cells for a Regulated Form of Necrotic-like Cell Death*
TLDR
Chelerythrine triggers necrotic-like cell death by an early and pronounced activation of caspases and mounting evidence suggests that both processes can be morphological expressions of a common biochemical network known as “apoptosis-necrosis continuum". Expand
Ion channels and apoptosis in cancer

TLDR
The role ion channels play in controlling and regulating life/death decisions and how they can be used to overcome resistance to apoptosis in the treatment of cancer are focused on. Expand
Neuronal Cell Death.
TLDR
Which forms of cell death occur in stroke and Alzheimer's disease are reassess, and why it has been so difficult to pinpoint the type of neuronal death involved is discussed. Expand

Apoptosis, oncosis, and necrosis. An overview of cell death.
TLDR
Some of the typical features of apoptosis are discussed, such as budding (as opposed to blebbing and zeiosis) and the inflammatory response, and stands in contrast to apoptosis, which leads to necrosis with karyorhexis and cell shrinkage. Expand
The Pathways of Cell Death: Oncosis, Apoptosis, and Necrosis
TLDR
It is clear that ion deregulation, particularly that of [Ca 2+]1 plays an important role in cell death following either apoptosis or oncosis, and genetic evidence strongly indicates that activation of proteases is an important step, possibly very near to the point where cell death occurs. Expand
A multiplicity of cell death pathways

Cytometry in cell necrobiology: analysis of apoptosis and accidental cell death (necrosis).
TLDR
Flow cytometry appears to be the methodology of choice to study various aspects of necrobiology and it is expected that flow cytometry will be the dominant methodology for necro biology. Expand
A model for cardiomyocyte cell death: insights into mechanisms of oncosis.
TLDR
The notion that oncosis is not representative of nonspecific necrosis, but constitutes a genetically controlled form of "programmed cell death" is strengthened; and also that onCosis might represent a pathogenetic mechanism of cardiomyocyte injury is suggested. Expand
Cell death in the pathogenesis of heart disease: mechanisms and significance.
TLDR
Pharmacological and genetic inhibition of apoptosis and necrosis lessens infarct size and improves cardiac function in these disorders and a better understanding of these processes and their interrelationships may allow for the development of novel therapies for the major heart syndromes. Expand
Programmed necrosis, not apoptosis, in the heart.
It is well known that apoptosis is an actively mediated cell suicide process. In contrast, necrosis, a morphologically distinct form of cell death, has traditionally been regarded as passive andExpand
Cell death by necrosis: towards a molecular definition.
TLDR
Because necrosis is prominent in ischemia, trauma and possibly some forms of neurodegeneration, further biochemical comprehension and molecular definition of this process could have important clinical implications. Expand
An alternative, nonapoptotic form of programmed cell death.
TLDR
It is shown that this form of programmed cell death is driven by an alternative caspase-9 activity that is Apaf-1-independent, and should lead to new insight into cell death programs and their roles in development and degeneration. Expand
Regulation of Cellular Oncosis by Uncoupling Protein 2*
TLDR
It is demonstrated in HeLa cells but not in normal diploid fibroblasts that modest increases in the expression level of uncoupling protein 2 (UCP-2) leads to a rapid and dramatic fall in mitochondrial membrane potential and to a reduction of mitochondrial NADH and intracellular ATP. Expand
