This book describes in simple terms the philosophical and technical difficulties in defining the moment of death for a cell, and discusses the biological implications and significance of apoptosis. The book is written for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students, and Cited by: Cambridge Core - Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, and Structural Biology - Apoptosis - by Douglas R. Green / edited by John C. ReedCited by: This book looks at the latest research studies on apoptosis in medicine. It is divided into three sections for convenient and easy reading. The first section which comprises two chapters is an introduction of the subject of apoptosis to the uninitiated. The second section which comprises a single solitary chapter looks at apoptosis in normal physiology during bone resorption under mechanical Author: Tobias M. Ntuli. The significance of apoptosis The development and maintenance of multicellular biological systems depends on a sophisticated interplay between the cells forming the organism, it sometimes even seems to involve an altruistic behaviour of individual cells in favour of the organism as a whole. During development many cells are.

Apoptosis (from Ancient Greek ἀπόπτωσις "falling off") is a form of programmed cell death that occurs in multicellular organisms. Biochemical events lead to characteristic cell changes and changes include blebbing, cell shrinkage, nuclear fragmentation, chromatin condensation, chromosomal DNA fragmentation, and global [vague] mRNA D Apoptosis is a type of programmed cell death in which molecules signal for the initiation and execution of cell death in response to certain regulatory or stress-induced signals. The regulation of apoptosis is critical to the proper development and function of organisms.

Abstract. The historical development of the cell death concept is reviewed, with special attention to the origin of the terms necrosis, coagulation necrosis, autolysis, physiological cell death, programmed cell death, chromatolysis (the first name of apoptosis in ), karyorhexis, karyolysis, and cell suicide, of which there are three forms: by lysosomes, by free radicals, and by a genetic Cited by: May 30,  · Apoptosis 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 Edition: 1. Cell Death.
