To prove erebosis is a new type of cell death, the researchers conducted several tests. First, experimentally stopping apoptosis did not prevent gut homeostasis. This meant that cell turnover in the gut, including cell death, can proceed without apoptosis. Second, the dying cells did not show any of the molecular markers for apoptosis or the other two judi slot online jackpot terbesar types of known cell death. Cells in late-stage erebosis did show a general marker for cell death related to degraded DNA.
