Life and death decisions: ced-9 and programmed cell death in Caenorhabditis elegans



Life and death decisions: ced-9 and programmed cell death in Caenorhabditis elegans



Science Washington 270(5238): 931



The ced-9 gene of Caenorhabditis elegans appears to function by negatively regulating the activities of the ced-3 and ced-4 genes, keeping the cell death programme off in cells that are scheduled to live.
