The aim of Apoptosis and Cancer is to describe the performance of contemporary techniques for studying the biology of apoptosis and its role in cancer. The protocols described will aid both the academic laboratory interested in further characterizing the mechanisms of apoptosis, as well as the industry laboratory, aimed at identifying new target molecules or screening for new compounds with potential clinical use.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"Divided among 17 chapters, the condensed information about apoptosis, its pathways and the performance of progressive techniques for apoptosis assessment are presented. . The valuable and most appreciated part of each chapter are notes - the reader will find here the plethora of hints, the real grain of wisdom, virtual wizard that saves a lot of struggling time at benchtop. This book belongs to the category of must-have books." (J. Sedlák, Neoplasma, September, 2008)
