Overview

DNA Repair Mechanisms: Impact on Human Diseases and Cancer by Jean-Michel H. Vos

This book is about the cellular mechanisms evolved by human beings to protect their genetic materials from genotoxic damage, and its numerous pathological consequences, including cancer and hereditary diseases. The various DNA repair pathways are part of a much larger picture of intracellular metabolisms, which includes gene expression, chromosome duplication, signal transduction, cell cycling, genomic evolution, genetic mobility, and cell death. The major thrust of this volume is on our growing understanding of human diseases through the study of DNA repair. It aims at stimulating new areas of research in the future usage of DNA repair mechanisms for the treatment of human diseases.
