Contents Notes
Oxidative Stress, Intracellular Calcium Signals and Apoptotic Processes -- Apoptosis -- Apoptosis in Exocrine Acinar Cells -- Apoptosis in the Liver -- Apoptosis in Nervous Cells -- Apoptotic Events in Blood Cells -- Apoptotic Events in Endothelial and Smooth Muscle Cells -- Apoptotic Events in Male Germ Cells and in Mature Mammalian Spermatozoa. Apoptosis: Involvement of Oxidative Stress and Intracellular Ca2+ Homeostasis, presents a concise synthesis of the current knowledge and recent advances in the mechanisms of apoptosis in different cells and the role of oxidative stress and Ca2+ signalling. Particular attention is given to the different features of apoptosis in distinct cell types, ranging from hepatocytes to cardiovascular and blood cells, nervous cells or spermatozoa. Cutting-edge and user-friendly, this volume serves as a comprehensive resource for those interested in the fascinating biological processes associated to programmed cell death or apoptosis. The book is divided in two major chapter sections: general mechanisms of the apoptotic pathways and the role of oxidative stress and intracellular Ca2+ homeostasis and a more specific section dedicated to the specificities of apoptosis in a number of excitable and non-excitable cells. All of the contributions are from specialists in the field and the reviews presented, systemically examine the most exciting and innovative aspects of the apoptotic pathways in their particular areas of expertise.
