Decoding cell death signals in inflammation and immunity

Cell. 2010 Mar 19;140(6):798-804. doi: 10.1016/j.cell.2010.02.015.


Dying cells release and expose at their surface molecules that signal to the immune system. We speculate that combinations of these molecules determine the route by which dying cells are engulfed and the nature of the immune response that their death elicits.
