about

Cell death is one of the fundamental processes by which normal development is modulated, and the importance of both necrosis and apoptosis in a number of pathologies has generated intense interest from researchers in many fields. This timely book covers both the proteins that are produced by dying cells and the proteins that signal cells to initiate cell death.
Cell Death Proteins provides an overview of the explosive interest in cellular death. Six review papers, written by researchers at the forefront of this rapidly moving field, focus on proteins that promote, signal, and inhibit cell death. Major players involved in the cell death cascade and its controls are covered, including cell cycle checkpoints, the function of interleukin-1J converting enzyme, the role of IGF-I receptor, the Bcl-2 family of proteins, viral inhibitors of apoptosis, and p53-dependent apoptosis.
Following a liberal arts education with a major in chemistry and biology at Hobart College, Gerald (Gerry) Litwack earned M.S. and PhD degrees in biochemistry from the University of Wisconsin, Madison where he served as a Lecturer in Enzymology before starting a postdoctoral fellowship from the National Foundation for Infantile Paralys...
