1996) studied the induction of apoptosis
caused by the methylated arsenic species.
applications for our apoptosis
technology," said Steve Mento,
For instance, some researchers have found a type of programmed cell death that bears little resemblance to apoptosis
Wang developed the cell-free apoptosis
model system in order to study the mechanism of activation of caspases.
There is rising academic interest in apoptosis
due to biologists' need to understand the mechanism of cell number regulation and, therefore, the maintenance of homeostasis in living systems.
We are thrilled to have so many of the thought-leaders in apoptosis
research join us for this unprecedented event," said Steve Mento, Ph.
At once, cells in the animals' tumors exhibited high rates of apoptosis
and tumor growth slowed.
The study also focuses on major diseases for which the treatment is based on apoptosis
comprising Cancer, Neurodegenerative Diseases, Cardiovascular Diseases and other apoptosis
based diseases including HIV Infection, Organ Transplant Rejection and MODS.
Robert Horvitz, MIT, "The Genetic Control of Apoptosis
The goal of this study was to determine the role of Fas-mediated apoptosis
in human epidermal aging.
has recently been identified as an important mechanism of cell death and evidence suggests that prevention of cell apoptosis
can improve survival in animal models of sepsis and endotoxaemia.
This report analyzes the worldwide markets for Apoptosis
in US$ Million.
They cover detecting apoptosis
and non-apoptotic cell death, characterizing modifications of apoptotic proteins during apoptosis
, analyzing the function of major regulators of apoptosis
and cell survival, and analyzing apoptosis
in different organs and in model organisms.
can also be induced by pathways that depend on the activation of the cellular immune response through Fas/Fas-L and TNFR, pathways that are involved in both tissue injuries and control mechanisms of the immune response.
Studies have shown that inhibition or depletion of RLIP76, a glutathione-conjugate transport protein that helps cells defend themselves against toxicants, causes apoptosis
in a number of cancer cell types.
