Synopsis: 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.
* A cross-disciplinary look at cell death using a broad range of technical approaches and model systems
* The protocols and insights presented are the products of years of study by experts in their fields
* The chapters cover a topical spectrum from the cellular to the organismal and the molecular to the anatomical
* The methods are illustrated with user-friendly recipes and more than 100 tables, halftones, and diagrams
* The techniques described facilitate both understanding and regulation of cell death, promising to have immense value in the clinical treatment of cancer
* Illustrated with 9 color plates
From the Back Cover:
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.
