"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 from the 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. This book presents 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. This book is illustrated with color plates.

"This is a high quality book and should be useful for several years to come. (It is) a very useful book that should be in every research library. The research effort investigating PCD is growing at a very rapid rate and this bookis a timely addition to this important research area. (I rate it at) five out of five stars." --Alan Telser in DOODY'S JOURNALAbout the Author:
