Study of apoptosis in vitro using the Xenopus egg extract reconstitution system.


It was first shown by Newmeyer and colleagues in the 1990s that the molecular events of apoptosis could be reconstituted in vitro using Xenopus egg extracts. When the egg extract is allowed to incubate at room temperature for an extended time, the biochemical events of apoptosis are activated spontaneously. The features of apoptosis in the Xenopus… (More)
