Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 012632445X, Paperback)Cell Death provides a current and comprehensive collection of methods for the study of cell death. Using a diverse range of technical approaches and model systems, the chapters in this volume cover topics fromthe cellular and organismal to the molecular and anatomical. In the tradition of this long-standing series, this volume's user-friendly recipes and more than 100 tables and figures make the study of cell death accessible across life science disciplines.
Because of breakthroughs such as the"switching"mechanism of the p53 tumor suppressor gene, as well as many technical innovations, the number of investigators of cell death has rapidly expanded over the last few years. Students of apoptosis and other types of cell death hypothesize that virtually all cells are genetically programmed to self-destruct. In turn, they also have learned that massive cell death does not always represent pathology, but rather a normal and necessary"weeding out"in the development and life of an organism. The clinical implications are immense, as the understanding and ability to regulate this process may offer the potential to treat cancer and a wide variety of other disorders.
