Apoptosis, or programmed cell death, is an essential process that ensures an organism’s health by eliminating damaged or aberrant cells.
The process is induced by a variety of stimuli and mediated either through cell surface death receptors (extrinsic pathway) or the mitochondria (intrinsic pathway) (Galluzzi et al. 2008).
Our webinar entitled “A question of Life or Death” provides an overview of the different modes of apoptosis and what antibody applications and assays to use to differentiate between healthy and apoptotic cells.
Special focus will be placed on explaining the different stages of apoptosis and what experimental read-outs to use to determine if a cell has passed “the point of no return”.
