Cell death and survival
Guest edited by Professor James Murphy
Cell death pathways play essential roles in health and disease in eukaryotes, from important roles in governing development of multicellular organisms and innate immunity in their health to oncogenesis and inflammation in disease. Our molecular level understanding of these pathways, how they are regulated, their cues and effectors, the interplay between these pathways, and pathway deregulation in disease, is still emerging.
This collection on cell death is co-hosted by the Biochemical Journal and Biochemical Society Transactions, and features cutting-edge review articles from leading researchers in the field in both journals as well as mechanistic research in the Biochemical Journal.Topics covered include the mechanistic, structural, biochemical, and cellular biology of regulated cell death pathways, including apoptosis, necroptosis, NETosis, pyroptosis, ferroptosis, and autophagic cell death.
We would like to thank all the authors for their excellent contributions, and we hope you enjoy reading this special collection.
