Cell Death

Cell death is the Cessation of respiration within the cell that stops the production of energy, nutrients, active molecular transport, and the like. Cell death is the event of a biological cell ceasing to carry out its functions. This may be the result of the natural process of old cells dying and being replaced by new ones, or may result from such factors as disease, localized injury, or the death of the organism of which the cells are part. Cell death includes Programmed cell death (or PCD), Apoptosis and Autophagy. Programmed cell death is cell death mediated by an intracellular program. Autophagy is cytoplasmic, characterized by the formation of large vacuoles that eat away organelles in a specific sequence prior to the destruction of the nucleus. Apoptosis is the process of programmed cell death that may occur in multicellular organisms.
