We have reported that turmeric also activates the lymphocytes and induces apoptosis to tumor cells.
The role of macrophage apoptosis in containing the growth of the bacilli is also discussed.
Radioiodine can cause significant apoptosis and mitotic cell death in the thyroid tissue.
Programmed cell death by apoptosis plays a key role in molding the form of chick and mammalian limbs, especially the digits.
In addition, the signals that lead a cell to necrosis or apoptosis remain to be elucidated.
Clearance of apoptotic cells by phagocytes is crucial in maintaining tissue homeostasis.
This removal of apoptotic neutrophils by macrophage phagocytosis is a critical process for the resolution of inflammation.
We recommend further evaluation using additional special techniques for detecting apoptotic leukocytes.
In the first part of this review, the biochemistry and physiology of apoptotic pathways and its regulators are discussed.
They are thought to represent lysosomal globules, composed of apoptotic bodies phagocytosed by the tumor cells.
