Checkpoint Controls and Cancer, Vol. 2: Activation and Regulation Protocols

Intracellular checkpoint controls constitute a network of signal transd- tion pathways that protect cells from external stresses and internal errors. Ext- nal stresses can be generated by the continuous assault of DNA-damaging agents, such as environmental mutagens, ultraviolet (UV) light, ionizing radiation, or the reactive oxygen species that can arise during normal cellular metabolism. In response to any of these assaults on the i...

Biologie du développement : Les grands principes

La biologie du développement est au centre de toute la biologie des organismes pluricellulaires. Elle traite des processus par lesquels les gènes d'un oeuf fécondé, en contrôlant le comportement cellulaire de l'embryon, déterminent les caractéristiques de l'animal ou de la plante. Un lien majeur unit également la biologie du développement à l'évolution, puisque les organismes qui s'adaptent le mieux à leur environnement sont issus de...
