Abstract: The present review summarizes findings on stress-induced cell death in the IPLB-LdFB insect cell line derived from the larvalfat body of the lepidopteron Lymantria dispar. Apoptotic, oncotic and autophagic cell death have been described in these cells as a consequenceof oxidative stress or ATP deprivation, and similarities between IPLB-LdFB and mammalian apoptotic pathways have beenhighlighted. Furthermore, starting from observations in the IPLB-LdFB cells, a link has been surmised between relevance of autophagiccell death and developmental processes in the metazoan taxa.
