Oncotarget a primarily oncology-focused, peer-reviewed, open access, biweekly journal aims to maximize research impact through insightful peer-review; eliminate borders between specialties by linking different fields of oncology, cancer research and biomedical sciences; and foster application of basic and clinical science. Its scope is unique. The term "oncotarget" encompasses all molecules, pathways, cellular functions, cell types, and even tissues that can be viewed as targets relevant to cancer as well as other diseases.
Programmed cell death PCD ; sometimes referred to as cellular suicide  is the death of a cell as a result of events inside of a cell, such as apoptosis or autophagy. For example, the differentiation of fingers and toes in a developing human embryo occurs because cells between the fingers apoptose ; the result is that the digits are separate. PCD serves fundamental functions during both plant and animal tissue development. Apoptosis and autophagy are both forms of programmed cell death. Necrosis was long seen as a non-physiological process that occurs as a result of infection or injury,  but in the s, a form of programmed necrosis, called necroptosis ,  was recognized as an alternative form of programmed cell death. It is hypothesized that necroptosis can serve as a cell-death backup to apoptosis when the apoptosis signaling is blocked by endogenous or exogenous factors such as viruses or mutations.
Leaf senescence is a highly regulated stage in the plant life cycle, leading to cell death, recently examined as a type of the programmed cell death PCD. The comet assay, a sensitive method revealing nonrandom internucleosomal damage that is specific for PCD, is especially useful for the detection of nDNA degradation in isolated viable cells. Simultaneously, we analyzed the mesophyll cell ultrastructure and the photosynthetic-pigment concentration in the leaves of two species, Ornithogalum virens and Nicotiana tabacum , representing mono- and dicotyledonous plants which differ in the pattern of leaf differentiation. These investigations demonstrated that, in both species, the comet assay revealed nDNA degradation in yellow-leaf protoplasts containing chloroplasts that showed already changed ultrastructure swelled or completely degraded thylakoids and cell nuclei with a significant condensation of chromatin. There was no nDNA degradation in green-leaf protoplasts containing differentiated chloroplasts with numerous grana stacks and nuclei with dispersed chromatin.
The aging process worsens the human body functions at multiple levels, thus causing its gradual decrease to resist stress, damage, and disease. Specific increases of ROS level have been demonstrated as potentially critical for induction and maintenance of cell senescence process. Causal connection between ROS, aging, age-related pathologies, and cell senescence is studied intensely. Senescent cells have been proposed as a target for interventions to delay the aging and its related diseases or to improve the diseases treatment. Therapeutic interventions towards senescent cells might allow restoring the health and curing the diseases that share basal processes, rather than curing each disease in separate and symptomatic way. Here, we review observations on ROS ability of inducing cell senescence through novel mechanisms that underpin aging processes. Particular emphasis is addressed to the novel mechanisms of ROS involvement in epigenetic regulation of cell senescence and aging, with the aim to individuate specific pathways, which might promote healthy lifespan and improve aging.
Cellular senescence acts as a brake pedal of the car in our system to avert accidents like cancer. Recent studies provide the lines of evidence that support how senescence contributes towards aging and age-associated diseases. How senescence plays a pivotal role in aging and cell death and their inter-relation have been discussed in detail. The current research or advancement in the field of senescence is the emergence of senolytic drugs for the eradication of senescent cells and induction of senescence in HIV-infected patients due to HAART drugs. Senescence plays a significant role in aging and cell death as well as shows resistance to apoptosis.
Abstract: Increasing evidence suggests an important role for programmed cell death PCD pathways in aging phenotypes across species. PCD is critical to the homeostasis of tissues maintained by cell division, for example, the blood and the lining of the gut. During aging, accumulated cellular damage and non-optimal systemic signaling can cause too little cell death hyperproliferation and cancer , or too much cell death tissue atrophy and ectopic cell death , thereby limiting tissue function and life span. For these reasons PCD pathways are promising targets for interventions in aging and aging-related diseases: reactivation of PCD may be beneficial in clearing cancerous and senescent cells, whereas inhibiting PCD may help prevent muscle atrophy and nervous system degeneration. The mechanisms by which cells die can be divided into two general types: programmed cell death PCD mechanisms that require energy, and necrotic cell death mechanisms that do not Elmore,
Cells go through a natural life cycle which includes growth, maturity, and death. This natural life cycle is regulated by a number of factors, and the disruption of the cycle is involved in many disease states. For example, cancer cells do not die the way normal cells do at the end of their life cycle. Here we look at the various processes by which cells age and die, both programmed and unprogrammed. Cellular senescence is part of the normal aging of a diploid cell where it loses its ability to divide. Some sources suggest that senescence occurs via programmed gene expression changes, or that it is a result of an accumulation of DNA double strand breaks or toxins.

Progressive telomere shortening during lifespan is associated with restriction of cell proliferation, genome instability and aging. Apoptosis and senescence are the two major outcomes upon irreversible cellular damage. Here, we show a transition of these two cell fates during aging of telomerase deficient zebrafish. In young telomerase mutants, proliferative tissues exhibit DNA damage and pdependent apoptosis, but no senescence. However, these tissues in older animals display loss of cellularity and senescence becomes predominant.
Metrics details. There have been enough cell death modes delineated in the biomedical literature to befuddle all cell death researchers. Mulling over cell death from the viewpoints of the host tissue or organ and of the host animal, we construe that there should be only two physiological cell death modes, i. Other death modes described in the literature are ad-hoc variants or coalescences of some of these four basic ones in different physiological or pathological situations. SD, SICD and necrosis kill useful cells and will thus trigger regeneration, wound healing and probably also scar formation. SICD and necrosis will likely instigate inflammation as well. Apoptosis occurs as a mechanism to purge no-longer useful cells from a tissue via phagocytosis by cells with phagocytic ability that are collectively tagged by us as scavengers, including macrophages; therefore apoptosis is not followed by regeneration and inflammation.
Он пошел на звук и уткнулся в стеклянную дверь, за которой, судя по доносящемуся оттуда шуму и гвалту, происходило нечто вроде драки. Преодолев отвращение, Беккер открыл дверь. Регистратура. Бедлам. Так он и. Очередь из десяти человек, толкотня и крик. Испания не славится эффективностью бюрократического аппарата, и Беккер понял, что ему придется простоять здесь всю ночь, чтобы получить информацию о канадце.

Девушка с сумкой была уже на улице. - Меган! - завопил он, грохнувшись на пол. Острые раскаленные иглы впились в глазницы. Он уже ничего не видел и только чувствовал, как тошнотворный комок подкатил к горлу.
Позвоните в банк данных! - приказала Сьюзан. - Предупредите их о вирусе. Вы заместитель директора АНБ и обязаны победить. Стратмор медленно поднял голову и как человек, принимающий самое важное решение в своей жизни, трагически кивнул.
