Autophagy and Cell Death
Autophagy and cell death are fundamental cellular processes that play critical roles in the physiology and pathology of multicellular organisms.
Autophagy is a conserved housekeeping process utilized by cells to maintain homeostasis by conveying intracellular components to lysosomal compartments for degradation and recycling.
Cell death can either be regulated, proceeding through precise signaling pathways or accidental resulting from unexpected cellular injury. While apoptosis is the earliest discovered regulated cell death pathway, several non-apoptotic regulated cell death pathways including pyroptosis, ferroptosis and necroptosis have gained prominence more recently.
