Summary In this book, scientists pioneering the field have compiled a series of focused chapters to highlight the relevance of the BCLa'2 family of proteins in apoptosis, physiology and disease. An important focus of this volume is considering the potential therapeutic benefits of targeting apoptosis pathways in the context of human disease. Readers interested in understanding how a cell handles stress and the consequences of dysregulation of this process for human disease will find this book very valuable. It attempts to describe a fascinating area of research where physiology and biomedicine converg
