About this book


Our understanding of the apoptotic pathway and its regulation has improved significantly in the last 10 years. However, as our knowledge of the intricate intracellular events increase, we realize the complexity of the regulatory mechanisms that control it. As such, Apoptosis and Cancer describes the performance of contemporary techniques for studying the biology of apoptosis and its role in cancer. This book is a collaboration between academics- and industry-based scientists. The chapters have the technical development characteristic of an academic environment and the standardized system necessary for translating a product to general use, as provided by the industry. Thus, the protocols described within this groundbreaking new volume will aid both an academic laboratory interested in further characterizing the mechanism of apoptosis and an industry laboratory interested on identifying new target molecules or screening for new compounds with potential clinical use. The authors – all leaders in the field – have created a comprehensive text that covers the newest available techniques as well as conventional basic techniques. Apoptosis and Cancer will undoubtedly provide the necessary resources to everyone interested in the area of apoptosis.
