Cell Death

Apoptosis and Other Means to an End

Second Edition

Douglas R. Green

A Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press Publication

In this second edition of Douglas Green's essential book on cell death, Green retains the bottom-up approach of the first edition, starting with the enzymes that carry out the execution (caspases) and their cellular targets before examining the machinery that connects them to signals that cause cell death. He also describes the roles of cell death in development, neuronal selection, and the development of self-tolerance in the immune system, as well as how the body uses cell death to defend against cancer.
