About this title
Apoptosis 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 from the cellular and organismal to the molecular and anatomical. The methods are illustrated with user-friendly recipes and over 100 tables, halftones, and diagrams.
Cell death is a fundamental feature of normal developmental and homeostatic processes. Dysregulated cell death is an underlying cause of many human diseases, such as cancer, autoimmunity, and neurodegeneration. Thus, it is not surprising that during the past several years, cell death has become one of the most intensively investigated areas of cell biology. The field has grown from about 25 papers per year to over 25 published papers every day.
This volume, designed to address the needs of biochemists, cell biologists, immunologists, pathologists, geneticists, and molecular biologists, provides a current and comprehensive collection of methods for studying cell death. Detailing a diverse range of technical approaches and model systems, the chapters in Apoptosis cover topics from the cellular and organismal to the molecular and anatomical. In the tradition of this long-standing Methods in Cell Biology series, the user-friendly recipes and more than 100 tables and figures in the current volume make the study of cell death accessible across life science disciplines.
