During apoptosis, the Apoptosis Inducing Factor (AIF) is known to be released from the mitochondrial intermembrane space to the cytosol, and moves to the nucleus. This new book reviews the basic morphological and molecular features of apoptosis and the role played by AIF in the intrinsic apoptotic pathway. In particular, based on multicolor immunocytochemistry at conventional and confocal fluorescence microscopy, discussed herein is the dynamic relocation of AIF throughout the apoptotic process in mammalian cells driven to apoptosis by different agents (etoposide, actinomycin D, cisplatinum, carboxamide) or photosensitized with the fluorogenic substrate Rosa Bengal acetate.
