    FASEB J 23:1869-79. 2009
    ..We conclude that cells differ innately according to sex irrespective of their history of exposure to sex hormones. These differences may have consequences in the course of sexually dimorphic diseases and their therapy...

    Department of Biology, Queens College and Graduate Center of the City University of New York, New York, USA
    Int J Dev Biol 49:43-7. 2005
    ..Our results indicate that the early deaths are not caspase-dependent and that there is a role for caspase activity in early embryos, which is not related to cell death...

    Zahra Zakeri
    Department of Biology, Queens College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, 65 30 Kissena Blvd, Flushing, New York 11361, USA
    Adv Exp Med Biol 615:1-11. 2008
    ..A cell that has passed the commitment stage but is blocked from undergoing apoptosis will die by another route. We still must learn much more about how a cell commits to death and what makes it choose a path to die...
