Title
Major cell death pathways at a glance
Author
Abstract
Cell death is a crucial process during development, homeostasis and immune regulation of multicellular organisms, and its dysregulation is associated with numerous pathologies. Cell death is often induced upon pathogen infection as part of the defense mechanism, and pathogens have evolved strategies to modulate host cell death. In this review, we will discuss the molecular mechanisms and physiological relevance of four major types of programmed cell death, namely apoptosis. necrosis, autophagic cell death and pyroptosis.
