Ion Channels in Regulated Cell Death
Journal: Cellular and molecular life sciences (2016)

Research Areas: Cell death
Summary: Despite the rather different morphologic appearances of apoptosis and necroptosis, both mechanisms of cell death require the transport of ions, organic osmolytes, and water. The contribution of these transport proteins and underlying mechanisms are summarized in this review.
