Apoptosis is a highly regulated and conserved pathway that plays a critical role in development and maintenance of cellular and tissue homeostasis. Cell death can occur via several pathways, including apoptosis, necrosis, and other “emerging” pathways which have become the focus of intense research. Classification of these types of cell death involves a defined set of morphological and/or biochemical criteria affecting the cellular architecture, and in the case of apoptosis, ultimately results in nuclear degradation and plasma membrane alterations.
