In science:

We examine whether early-type galaxies in clusters may have evolved from later types by the fading of their disks (e.g., as a result of ram-pressure stripping or strangulation) or by enhancement of the bulge luminosity (e.g., due to tidal interactions and mergers).
Can Early Type Galaxies Evolve from Fading the Disks of Late Types?
This test reveals no evidence that clusterspecific processes reduce the luminosity of disks, and thus does not support disk fading mechanisms such as ram pressure stripping or strangulation as shapers of the morphological sequence in clusters.
Can Early Type Galaxies Evolve from Fading the Disks of Late Types?
These differences include: high speed collisions, galaxy ’harassment,’, ram pressure stripping, ’strangulation,’ and induced slow collisions (see Figure 8).
Galaxy Collisions - Dawn of a New Era
Strangulation : Current theories of galaxy formation suggest that when a galaxy is accreted onto a larger structure, the gas supply can no longer be replenished by cooling that is suppressed (Larson et al. 1980).
How `heredity' and `environment' shape galaxy properties
This process has been given the quite violent name of ‘strangulation’ (or ‘starvation’ or ‘suffocation’) and it represents one important element of semi-analytic models of galaxy formation.
How `heredity' and `environment' shape galaxy properties
It is common to read in discussions related to these physical mechanisms that strangulation is expected to affect a galaxy star formation history on a quite long timescale and therefore to cause a slow declining activity.
How `heredity' and `environment' shape galaxy properties
Since this process (commonly referred to as ‘strangulation’) is usually combined with a relatively efficient supernovae feedback, galaxies that are accreted onto a larger system consume their gas very rapidly, moving onto the red-sequence on quite short time-scales [33, 34, 35].
"Ab initio" models of galaxy formation: successes and open problems
If the transformation simply involves a spiral galaxy losing its gas content through ram pressure stripping (Gunn & Gott 1972) or “strangulation ” (Larson et al. 1980), so ceasing star formation and fading into an S0, then clearly S0s and spirals are closely related.
Stellar populations in the bulges of S0s and the formation of S0 galaxies
The star formation activities of those galaxies would decrease gradually because the ISM consumed by the star formation is not compensated from the gas in the halo (strangulation).
