Apoptosis, a normal physiological form of cell death, is critically involved in the regulation of cellular homeostasis. If the delicate balance between cell death and cell proliferation is altered by a defect in the normal regulation of apoptosis signaling, a cell population is able to survive and accumulate, thereby favoring the acquisition of further genetic alterations and promoting tumorigenesis. Dysregulation of programmed cell death mechanisms plays an important role in the pathogenesis… CONTINUE READING
