Written by internationally recognized experts, The Genetics of Cancer provides up-to-date information and insight into the genetic basis of cancer and the mechanisms involved in cancer invasion and its secondary spread. This volume presents the deregulation of the cell cycle in tumor development and integrates the function of tumor suppressor genes, oncogenes, and metastasis-associated genes in the pathogenesis and progression of cancer. The Genetics of Cancer will be useful to all graduate students, clinicians, and researchers working in the fields of cancer biology, genetics, and molecular biology.

An understanding of the genetic basis of cancer and the mechanisms governing cancer invasion and its secondary spread are fundamental to our ability to design appropriate treatments.
This book, written by internationally recognised experts in cancer biology, provides insights into the deregulation of the cell cycle in tumour development and integrates the function of tumour suppressor genes, oncogenes and metastasis-associated genes in the pathogenesis and progression of cancer.
This volume presents an up to date and comprehensive coverage of current research in the field.
The contents include:
* Clonal evolution of the metastasis phenotype
* Cell Cycle regulation
* Apoptosis in tumour growth and metastasis
* Angiogenesis in cancer
* Cell surface glycoproteins and their receptors
* Proteinases and their inhibitors in cancer invasion
* Oncogenes and cancer metastasis
* Developmental genes
* Tumour suppressor genes
* Metastasis suppressor genes
* Dominant metastasis-associated genes
This book will be of interest to all graduates, clinicians and researchers working in the fields of cancer biology, genetics and molecular biology.
