Secondary Necrosis - (Jan/16/2013 )

Hello all,

are there any specific markers to distinguish "primary" necrosis from secondary necrosis (apoptosis followed by necrosis)?

Thanks in advance


secondary necrosis I haven't heard, but there is early apoptosis and late apoptosis. Annexin V/PI with flowcytometry is popular.


It seems that secondary necrosis is just an old term for apoptosis...Follow Curtis' suggestion.
