Since the terminology surrounding cell death is loosely used, we begin by defining the context in which we employ specific terms.


Cell Death Programme Cell Death Myosin Heavy Chain Abdominal Segment Myofibrillar Protein 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
