Simply, I just want to know antonym of "causative factor"
Below is the background the reason I wonder.
Normally, cell is connected with collagen.
When cell is detached from collagen, cell will be dead. -> In this case, cell detachment is a causative factor of cell death. Reversly, when cell is dead, cell will be detached from collagen. -> In this case, cell detachment result from cell death.
Here is my question.
To determine whether cell detachment is a causative factor or "____ factor" of cell death.
What word should I use?
