Mitochondrial programmed cell death pathways in yeast

J. Marie Hardwick, Wen Chih Cheng

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Whether or not yeast cell death is altruistic, apoptotic, or otherwise analogous to programmed cell death in mammals is controversial. However, growing attention to cell death mechanisms in yeast has produced several new papers that make a case for ancient origins of programmed death involving mitochondrial pathways conserved between yeast and mammals.
