Each cell initiates an incomplete process of asymmetric division, and a criss-cross exchange of transcription factors through the intercellular membrane that links the big mother cell and the small daughter cell will induce differentiation of the daughter cell into a spore, and death of the mother cell (Losick and Stragier, 1992). These successive processes of symmetry breaking and intercellular signalling – coupling survival of a part of the colony with death of another part – can be viewed either as examples of ‘murders’ by which some cells survive by killing their Cell Death & 2010, John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

Elegans were derived from the exploration of genetic mutants with Ced-3 or Ced-4 loss-of-function, and with both Ced-3 or Ced-4 and Ced-9 loss-of-function. These studies implied that (i) there was only one molecular pathway of PCD in C. , 1991; Horvitz, 1999). This led to the concept of the existence of specific, death genes that emerged and became selected during evolution for their sole capacity to induce or repress self-destruction. In a somehow paradoxical manner, however, cell death seemed for a long time not to play any significant role in C.
