Scent of dying cells: the role of attraction signals in the clearance of apoptotic cells and its immunological consequences.


In multicellular organisms apoptotic cells are rapidly and efficiently removed by professional or semi-professional phagocytes. The molecular mechanisms and the key players involved in this highly coordinate process, as well as its immunological outcome constitute a vividly expanding field of scientific interest. A plethora of studies provided a detailed… (More)
