death pathway

death pathway

finding that characterizes a protein that initiates final stage of cell death known as apoptosis. Mammalian families of proteins that execute the apoptotic pathway are Bcl-2, Apaf-1, and caspase-3. FAS receptor-ligand system is a regulator of apoptotic cell death.
Synonym(s): cell-death pathway

Two different pathways generally mediate Apoptosis: intrinsic pathway and extrinsic cell death pathway. In extrinsic pathway, cell death occurs when activated caspase-8 binds with Fas-associated protein with death domain (FADD), resulting in activation of caspases-6,-9, and ultimately caspase-3 7.

found that cerebral ischemia in mice in the absence of apoptotic signaling is contributing to the nonapoptotic death pathway like necroptosis.
Annexin V-FTIC apoptosis detection assay with PI was used to assess the cell death pathway. The maximum levels of apoptotic and necrotic induction were 4.02 and 2.25 fold, respectively.
The research team found that IFITM3 normally stops multiplication of the virus in human cells at an early step, preventing the infected cells from "implosive" cell death.Therefore, drugs that block this cell death pathway might be helpful for preventing the effects of ZIKV infection during pregnancy.
The objectives of this study were to investigate effects of apigenin on HeLa, SiHa, CaSki, C33A, and HaCaT cells with respect to (i) cell cytotoxicity, migration, and invasion of those cells; (ii) cell death pathway and cellular oxidative stress.
Conclusion: In respect to stenodactylin cytotoxicity, our results: (i) confirm the high toxicity to nervous cells, (ii) indicate that multiple cell death pathways can be induced, (iii) show that apoptosis is the main death pathway, (iv) demonstrate the involvement of necroptosis and (v) oxidative stress.
