Cell Separation: Methods and Selected Applications, Volume 5 provides information pertinent to the design and application of methods for the separation of cells. This book covers a variety of topics, including endothelial cells, separation of lymphoid cells, separation of T lymphocytes, and methods of epidermal separation.
Organized into 16 chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the role of endothelium in wound healing and neovascularization as well as in the pathogenesis of many disease states. This text then examines a method of cell separation, isokinetic sedimentation, which can be employed to concentrate and purify one type of cell from a single-cell suspension of disaggregated tissues or organs. Other chapters consider the nature of tumor cell heterogeneity. This book discusses as well the cellular properties essential in malignant tumor behavior. The final chapter deals with transplantable pancreatic acinar cell carcinoma.
This book is a valuable resource for cell biologists, experimental oncologists, hematologists, immunologists, and endocrinologists.
