Key Event Description
Taxa = necrotic tissue in the liver
During the process of towards necrotic tissue, too many cells die. In practice it is difficult to distinguish separate forms of cell death (apoptosis, necrosis and necroptosis), especially in vivo.
How It Is Measured or Detected
Histopathology: performed on tissue sections
· Hematoxylin (nuclei) and eosin staining: determine morphology
· TUNEL staining: cell death
(Weng et al. 2015)
(Guicciardi et al. 2013)
