Programmed cell death in protists

Programmed cell death in protists

Marcel Deponte

This is a great review article for us!

In the case of the blooming dinoflagellates, Vardi et al. suggested that by allowing only the best adapted individuals to establish cysts, while eliminating less healthy members of the community at the end of the bloom, programmed cell death might confer a selective advantage to a population during subsequent seasons.

The main part of interest will surely be Table 1 in the document where each protist and it’s programmed cell-death details are indexed.
