Cell Recognition of Apoptotic Cells

  • Chapter

Part of the Blood Cell Biochemistry book series (BLBI,volume 5)

Abstract

In recent years it has become clear that actively controlled cell death by apoptosis plays a fundamental role in many biological systems in both physiological and pathological situations (Williams et al., 1992). The specific recognition and disposal of apoptotic cells is essential to allow such cell death to occur in the closely regulated and nondisruptive fashion required in very diverse biological processes. Although this chapter focuses on mammalian cells, with particular emphasis on blood cells, other cells are also discussed where they provide useful illustrations of generally important principles.
