coagulation

1. The grouping together of small particles in a solution into larger particles. Such a solution eventually coagulates with the particles forming either a precipitate or a gel.
2. blood clotting

There are two physiological pathways, intrinsic pathway and extrinsic pathway, to activate coagulation cascade.
The induction of apoptosis by cathachunine occurred through an ROS-dependent mitochondria-mediated intrinsic pathway rather than an extrinsic pathway, and was regulated by the Bcl-2 protein family.
These were the activated Partial Thromboplastin Time (aPTT) test which measures the intrinsic pathway of blood coagulation and the Prothrombin Time (PT) test which monitors the tissue factor (extrinsic) pathway of clotting.
From intracellular perspective, there are two well-known major signaling pathways leading to apoptosis: the intrinsic pathway centered on mitochondria and the extrinsic pathway initiated by death receptors called Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF).
Most notably, activation of the intrinsic pathway with kaolin gave clotting times that were similar to unactivated (citrated native) samples, clearly indicating an incomplete contact pathway in all avian species tested, which aligns with previously published findings.
Conclusion: Taken together, the apoptosis inducing effect of brittle star polysaccharide via intrinsic pathway confirmed the anti tumor potential of marine polysaccharide.
Basically, there are two main signaling pathways for cellular apoptosis: a) the mitochondrial or intrinsic pathway that responds to intracellular stimuli and results in cytochrome c release from the mitochondria leading to the activation of Caspase-9; and b) the extrinsic death receptor pathway initiated by ligand binding to extracellular cell death receptors resulting in caspase-8 activation.
While the extrinsic apoptotic pathway is initiated by the activation of Fas (CD95) and tumor necrosis factor [alpha] receptors and their respective ligands, the intrinsic pathway is initiated by apoptotic stresses, such as p53, and ultimately results in disruption of the mitochondrial membrane and leakage of cytochrome-c into cell cytoplasm.
Apoptosis is classically signalled by two major apoptotic pathways (12) (Figure 2): the extrinsic pathway (also called the death receptor caspase-8 mediated pathway) and the intrinsic pathway (also called mitochondria-initiated caspase-9 pathway).
This sequence of activation in caspases is broadly classified into two pathways; the extrinsic pathway characterized by involvement of cell surface death receptors and the intrinsic pathway involved in key mitochondrial events.
