Book Description. The world’s most highly regarded reference text on the mechanisms and clinical management of blood diseases. A Doody’s Core Title for !   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 Book Edition: 1.   Apoptosis is a process that plays a critical role in the elimination of infected cells. Infectious diseases modulate apoptosis, and this contributes to disease pathogenesis. Apoptosis, also called programmed cell death, in biology, a mechanism that allows cells to self-destruct when stimulated by the appropriate trigger. Apoptosis can be triggered by mild cellular injury and by various factors internal or external to the cell; the damaged cells are then disposed of .

Apoptosis, or programmed cell death, is a normal component of the development and health of multicellular organisms. Cells die in response to a variety of stimuli and during apoptosis they do so in a controlled, regulated fashion. This makes apoptosis distinct from another form of cell death called necrosis in which uncontrolled cell death. La apoptosis se distingue de la necrosis, que es una muerte celular patológica.

ApoReview - Introduction to Apoptosis: Page 4 of Due to its importance in such various biological processes, programmed cell death is a widespread phenomenon, occuring in all kinds of metazoans [Tittel, ] such as in mammals, insects [Richardson, . Apoptosis is a unique morphological pattern of cell death which is coordinated by tightly regulated signaling pathways within dying cell. This highly regulated modality of cell death occurs in such a way that the dying cell's contents is neatly packaged into small packets which are rapidly taken up and degraded by local macrophages without the induction of inflammation.

Apoptosis; programmed cell death; intrinsic/extrinsic pathway; granzyme A/B; perforin; autophagy. INTRODUCTION The term apoptosis (a-po-toe-sis) was first used in a now-classic paper by Kerr, Wyllie, and Currie in to describe a morphologically distinct form of cell death, although cer-tain components of the apoptosis concept had been explicitly. Why apoptosis is known as the ‘Programmed Cell Death’? The total number of cells in an organ or organism is fundamentally fixed to a specific range in all multicellular organisms. In every multi-cellular organism, the cell number is effectively controlled by two strategies- (a) by regulating cell Division and (b) by regulating cell Death.

Apoptosis is a form of cell death characterized by several features including cell shrinkage, membrane blebbing, chromosome condensation, nuclear fragmentation, DNA laddering, and the eventual engulfment of the cell by phagosomes.
