Abstract

Stromal cells are connective tissue cells of any organ, and they support the function of the parenchymal cells of that particular organ. Stromal/stromal stem cells are fundamentally a heterogeneous population of cells with contradictory differentiation potential depending upon their environmental niche. Stromal cell biology is not only intriguing, but equally stromal cell ontogeny in vivo remains challenging. In recent years there has been substantial advances in our understanding of stromal cell biology, especially stromal cell isolation, characterization, differentiation, and interactions in physiological (epithelial-stromal interactions) as well as pathophysiological (stromal-cancer interactions) contexts. In addition, stromal cells are also utilized more and more as a therapeutic tool not only in the field of gene therapy but also in the translational field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Therefore, the goal of this book is to consolidate the recent advances in the area of stromal/stromal stem cell biology covering a broad range of interrelated topics in a timely fashion and to disseminate that knowledge in a lucid way to a greater scientific audience. This book will prove highly useful for students, researchers, and clinicians in stem cell biology, developmental biology, cancer biology, pathology, oncology, as well as tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. This quick reference will benefit anyone desiring a thorough overview of stromal cell structure, function, and its therapeutic implications.

Abstract

Cell culture is one of the major tools used in cellular and molecular biology, delivering an excellent model for studying the normal physiology and biochemistry of cells. This book covers some advanced aspects in cell culture methodologies. The book has four sections discussing different types of cell culture models, including 3D cell culture techniques, their advantages, and limitations in comparison to traditional 2D culturing; cell viability, autophagy, in vitro toxicity tests and live cell imaging; stem cell culture for cell-based therapeutics; and specific applications and methodologies for hybrid cell lines and cancer models. This book provides a comprehensive overview of some of the advanced cell culture methodologies and applications. It serves as a valuable source for scientists, researchers, clinicians and students.

Abstract

Intracellular signal transduction is an important topic of research in cell and molecular biology. It has a wide range of implications in growth, differentiation, development, animal polarity, cellular response monitoring, and many disease processes, including cancer. The functional homeostasis of a cell is assumed to be maintained by an intricate network of signaling that evolved through natural selection. This book includes chapters written in the frontier areas of research on cell signaling. Issues such as information thermodynamics, master regulation of immune tolerance, genetically encoded reporter circuits and their applications, hypoxia, and vitamin K2 mediated signaling processes are addressed and discussed by eminent researchers of the field.
