About this book
- Offers an up-to-date and comprehensive review of the latest advances in DNA damage sensing, signaling and repair Describes current bottlenecks and future directions
- Discusses the relationship between DNA damage repair and cancer
- Written by active investigators who have made important contributions in their respective areas
The book The DNA Damage Response: Implications on Cancer Formation and Treatment brings together a great collection of review articles. The articles have been written by a group of experts who have a deep knowledge of the recent advances in the fields of DNA damage signalling and repair and their implications in carcinogenesis.
The book is divided into chapters that deal with the elaborate surveillance system and repair mechanisms used by cells to suppress mutagenic lesions to avoid cancer. It provides snapshots of:
* current understanding of DNA damage signalling,
* cell cycle checkpoints,
* some of the major DNA repair pathways,
* functional links between DNA damage,
* genomic instability and cancer,
* implications of DNA damage for the development of new treatment modalities for cancer.
