The Gasdermin Superfamily is a novel gene group consisting of Gasdermin Family genes (GSDMA, GSDMB, GSDMC and GSDMD in humans) and Gasdermin-related genes (DFNA5 and DFNB59 in humans). The members of the Superfamily are expressed in the epithelial cells of a variable type of tissue and may have a differentiation-status specific role; however, their actual functions remain unknown. In this book, the current status of studies on the Superfamily genes is overviewed and their biological importance is discussed. (Imprint: Nova)
