Results showing the same signaling enzymes can trigger two different processes in the cell sound a warning to biomedical researchers Stroke, heart attacks and numerous other common disorders result in a massive destruction of cells and tissues called necrosis. It´s a violent event: As each cell dies, its membrane ruptures, releasing substances that trigger inflammation, which in turn can cause more cellular necrosis. A new Weizmann Institute study may help develop targeted therapies...
