Advances in Genetics increases its focus on modern human genetics and its relation to medicine with the merger of this long-standing serial with Molecular Genetic Medicine. This merger affirms the Academic Press commitment to publish important reviews of the broadest interest to geneticists and their colleagues in affiliated disciplines. This volume of Advances in Genetics continues the series goal to present both human and molecular genetic reviews in a timely fashion. Anderson and Kay investigate CAB gene expression in the regulation of gene transcriptions in plants. Harmon and Allan offer an historical overview of apoptosis and its recent heightened interest. Developments involving four X-linked disorders and their resulting increased susceptibility to infection are presented by Smith and Notarangelo. Dickson and colleagues present research on the role of dystrophin in Duchenne muscular dystrophy and the potential feasibility of gene therapy in curing this disease as well as other diseases involving the heart and central nervous system. The relationship between mice and humans and the ways in which they help each other understand gene function and relationship is presented by El
