Article Title: After-death functions of cell death
Abstract: Cell death can occur through numerous regulated mechanisms, from apoptosis to necrosis, entosis, and others. Each has a distinct mode of regulation and effect on tissue homeostasis. While the elimination of individual cells is typically considered the relevant physiologic endpoint of cell death, in some cases the remnants left behind by death can also function to support tissue homeostasis. Here we discuss specific functions of the end products of cell death, and how “after-death” functions may contribute to the roles of programmed cell death in physiology. © 2019, Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine Inc..
