The Protein Orchestrating Cells’ Dance of Death

When cells become diseased or infected, a “suicide switch” is triggered, preventing neighboring cells from becoming compromised. This self-destructive process, known as necroptosis, is tightly controlled by a complex network of biochemical pathways. However, certain conditions, such as inflammatory bowel disease, can see necroptosis spiraling out of control with major health consequences. Molecular targets…
