About this book

Apoptosis is a highly regulated mechanism by which cells undergo cell death in an active way. As one of the most challenging tasks concerning cancer is to induce apoptosis in malignant cells, researchers increasingly focus on natural products to modulate apoptotic signaling pathways.

This book reviews the main effects of natural compounds on the different apoptotic signaling pathways, including the intrinsic and extrinsic apoptosis pathways, the NF-kB-mediated pathway, the PI3K/Akt signaling, and other main pathways.

Among the topic specially covered are the effects of natural compounds on cancer cells, natural compounds as inducers of cell death, diet in health and disease, inflammation and cancer, natural compounds as kinase inhibitors, natural compounds in neurodegenerative diseases and natural compounds as inhibitors of ROS.

An essential guide to further study in this field. (Business & Finance Ireland, November 2009)
