Started Article on Apoptosis

I just started this page on apoptosis, but as I am new to CZ, I am not sure if there are templates or other markers I need to add to the page as well.

Please feel free to add or edit what I've done so far. I used the wikipedia page ( to help guide me, since it is rather substantial and apparently rated as an A/B class article. I'm not an expert on apoptosis, but hopefully I'll have some time later to continue writing the article. Wesley Chua 07:39, 8 March 2008 (CST)

I've dealt with some of the boilerplate for you. J. Noel Chiappa 07:58, 8 March 2008 (CST)

I have expanded the article a little more, although I am half-way through a section and still need to finish discussing Fas/FasL. I am still using the Wikipedia article to help me, since it has a lot of useful information, although I am not currently writing the CZ article in the same order. If anyone else wants to pitch in to help/knows more about this than I do, please go ahead! Wesley Chua 17:18, 8 March 2008 (CST)

I have changed/added some information to the introductory section of this article on apoptosis. My intention is to definitely add some to the processes section as well as add a section on the intrensic pathway. I will also start some articles that should be linked to this page such as on particular proteins involved in these pathways. Brandon C. Seda 16:29, 1 July 2009 (EST)
