Evo Devo

Evolutionary development - at the biological interface between genetic regulatory mechanisms and biological evolution.

cellular fate

New eukaryotic cells arise through cellular reproduction (proliferation).

A variety of potential fates and activities await freshly arisen cells:
differentiation into cell lines versus retained pluripotentiality
motility and migration in response to chemotactic signals
● participation in inflammatory and immune responses
● cellular growth and metabolic activities
cellular survival versus apoptosis
cellular cycling and reproduction
● cellular adhesion and signaling
malignant transformation
● pathology and disease
