Bcl-2 Function in Drosophila
Bcl-2 family members are pivotal regulators of programmed cell death (PCD). In mammals, pro-apoptotic Bcl-2 family members initiate early apoptotic signals by causing the release of cytochrome c from the mitochondria, a ...
Characterizaton of Mcl-1 in Regulating Different Forms of Cell Death
Programmed Cell Deaths (apoptosis, autophagic cell death and necrosis) play essential roles in animal development and certain diseases. Autophagy is a cellular process that provides nutrients to starved cells by digesting ...
Apoptosis Determinants in Drosophila Melanogaster
Apoptosis is a form of programmed cell death (PCD) that is governed by a core set of genes conserved across diverse metazoan phyla. Cells dying by apoptosis exhibit a characteristic series of morphological and biochemical ...
