Final Report Summary - DEATHSWITCHING (Identifying genes and pathways that drive molecular switches and back-up mechanisms between apoptosis and autophagy)
The first major goal of the project was to study how the cell’s built-in survival and programmed cell death pathways are interconnected. Specifically, we wished to understand how the cell switches between autophagy, mainly a survival pathway, and cell death by apoptosis. We...
