Cell death plays a very important role in maintaining homeostasis. Cell death can result from infection, cellular or systemic stress, or other cellular signals. Cell death is classified based on the morphological and biochemical characteristics. Cellular death can occur via necrosis, apoptosis, autophagy, necroptosis, pyroptosis, and anoikis.
