Description

Human Caspases and Neuronal Apoptosis in Neurodegenerative Diseases discusses neurodegenerative diseases and their epidemiology and clinical presentation, describes the structural organization of human caspases, their classification, role with mitochondria, and mechanisms of activation, including extensive discussions of neuronal apoptosis and its pathways and underlying mechanisms. Finally, the book discusses the intricate mechanisms and interplay between human caspases and neuronal apoptosis in neurodegenerative diseases. All of this is undercut with extensive coverage of molecular events in the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disorders. Biomedical researchers, graduate students and scientists, along with neuroscientist and student trainees will greatly benefit from this comprehensive information.

Neurodegenerative diseases are characterized by progressive structural and/or functional deterioration and eventual death of affected neurons. The progression of these disorders shares similarities at the molecular level. The programmed cell death manifests as blebbing of the plasma membrane, protein degradation, DNA damage and clearance of dead cells by scavengers.
