Item description for Programmed Cell Death: The Cellular and Molecular Basis of Apoptosis by Amy L. Lavin...
This book brings together the latest international research on the complex subject of programmed cell death and covers such areas as the biochemical mechanisms, introduction of DNA fragmentation, genetic regulation, and the importance of apoptosis in the immune system, particularly during T-cell development, and in cancer. The comparison of a number of common signal transduction pathways with those involved in cell growth highlights an important relationship between apoptosis and the control of cell proliferation. The study of apoptosis, or programmed cell death, has come of age in recent years after lingering on the edge of acceptance for more than two decades. Although general morphological features have been used to consistently identify the changes in cell ultrastructure occuring during apoptosis, as distinct from necrosis, important advances have been achieved more recently in the investigation of the cellular and molecular aspects of this process.
