Cutting-edge coverage of stem cell biology and applications
Featuring contributions from leading global experts, this
authoritative volume addresses all major areas of stem cell biology
and their potential therapeutic applications. The first part of the
book covers embryonic stem cells and contains details on the
emerging field of embryonic stem cell-based drug screening
platforms. The second part deals with multipotent adult stem cells
from different tissue types, and covers unique concepts such as
cancer stem cells and tissue engineering-based approaches for
designing microenvironments for tissue regeneration. Eighty pages
of inserts with 113 color figures are included in this pioneering
Coverage includes: Zebrafish, medaka, chicken embryonic, and
mouse embryonic stem cells Derivation of human embryonic stem cells
(hESCs) from blastocysts Treating diabetes with hESCs hESCs as a
model system to study human genetics Application of hESCs in drug
discovery Adult stem cells for regenerative medicine and cancer
therapies Mesenchymal stem cells for neurodegenerative disease
therapies Dental pulp, hematopoietic, and spermatogonial stem cells
Epigenetic regulators of stem cell pluripotency Cancer stem
