Cell death plays a critical role in development, normal physiology, and many diseases, including cancer. This new edition on the subject provides a state-of-the-art summary of our understanding of the signaling mechanisms that regulate cell survival and cell death, along with the molecular mechanisms underlying the various different death processes seen in cells.
