The mechanisms of cell death play a fundamental role in neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and Huntington’s disease. Caspase activity, cathepsin activity, and oxidative stress all contribute to cell death in the forms of apoptosis, pyroptosis, and necrosis. ICT offers a reliable and accurate line of fluorescent reagents to help neuroscience researchers detect cell death in their samples using flow cytometry, fluorescence microscopy, or a fluorescence plate reader. In this webinar, we will discuss different types of cell death, the role of cell death in neurodegenerative diseases, and methods to assess cell death in cell cultures.
