By Robert K.M. Hay, Jae-Gahb Park, Adi Gazdar

Human tumor cells in tradition are precious for learning melanoma factors and houses. this useful reference presents important details for melanoma researchers on everyday, proven tumor telephone strains of the key human organ systems.
Atlas of Human Tumor telephone Lines comprises information approximately morphological, metabolic, genetic, and development features of human tumor cells, with morphological features awarded in additional than 250 photomicrographs. It additionally comprises details for developing and preserving human tumor phone traces in tradition, and every bankruptcy covers destiny views.

* Covers well-characterized tumor mobile strains from the foremost human organ systems
* provides over 250 photomicrographs, either phase-contrast and electron micrographs
* incorporates a checklist of key references for every chapter
* Written by way of world-renowned experts

Acute Kidney Injury (Contributions to Nephrology, 156)

Acute kidney harm is outlined as an abrupt switch in serum creatinine and/or urine output, and a majority of sufferers admitted to the ICU have a few facts of the affliction. regrettably, remedy for this advanced syndrome is as but missing and realizing is proscribed. An interdisciplinary panel of specialists has contributed to this quantity, illuminating a few of the basic and intricate points of the sickness starting from pathophysiology to therapy, from rising biomarkers to genetic polymorphisms.

Evolution equations and their applications in physical and life sciences

This quantity provides a set of lectures on linear partial differntial equations and semigroups, nonlinear equations, stochastic evolutionary procedures, and evolution difficulties from physics, engineering and mathematical biology. The contributions come from the sixth overseas convention on Evolution Equations and Their functions in actual and lifestyles Sciences, held in undesirable Herrenalb, Germany.

Nitric oxide: principles and actions

This certain sourcebook serves as a finished reference, bridging the well-established chemistry of nitric oxide and the hot and fascinating position of nitric oxide as an effector and signaling molecule in several organic structures. Nitric Oxide: ideas and activities relates the chemical homes of the molecule to its attainable results on organic platforms, below either common physiological and pathophysiological stipulations.

Ciba Foundation Symposium 164 - Interactions Among Cell Signalling Systems

A panel of the world over well known specialists current papers on phone signalling--an quarter within which there was fresh vital advances. assurance contains the inositol 1, four, 5-triphosphate receptor, signal-induced phospholipid degradation cascade and protein kinase C activation, cyclic AMP interactions in sustained mobile reaction, the acetylcholine receptor and masses extra.

1987). , 1989). , 1990). Given the finding that Sevenless has a specific function in one particular cell type in the developing eye of the fruit fly, the selective expression of c-ros mRNA in glioma cell lines is certainly an intriguing finding. Even more intriguing is the finding that c-ros mRNA does not seem to be expressed in gliomas in vivo (Wu and Chikaraishi, 1990) or in the mammalian nervous system during development. , 1991). Searches for other abnormalities in structure or expression of oncogenes and proto-oncogenes in human glioma cell lines have yielded a relatively incoherent picture.
