All organisms possess molecular mechanisms for responding to environmental stress induced under conditions such as limited nutrient availability, chemical exposure or phototoxicity. All organisms, from single cells to complex multicellular societies, activate biochemical pathways in response to specific stress cues in order to promote their survival. Ongoing research aims to understand both similarities and differences in these pathways among a wide variety of organisms. As an example, molecular pathways in lower eukaryotic organisms such as yeast can be placed in the context of broader stress response networks and serve as working models for understanding human cellular pathways. Likewise, comparisons can be made among different cell types within an organism, or between different organisms to understand common molecular responses to a given stressor.
The chapters in this book address stress response in yeast, plants and humans. The topics discussed include acetic acid-induced stress response in yeast, damaging effects of reactive oxygen species in chloroplasts, stress-induced gene expression in plants, plant defenses that detoxify and preserve integrity of plant tissues, interaction of metabolons with cytoskeleton to enhance cell survival during stress, toxic exposure that promotes cancer onset, irreversible damage of tumor cells, the use of Gene Ontology annotations to integrate human signaling pathways, and a wide array of approaches for imaging cellular metabolism.
