  • Stem Cells and Human Diseasesby Rakesh Srivastava; Sharmila Shankar

    Springer 2012; US$ 279.00

    The main objective of this book is to provide a comprehensive review on stem cells and their role in tissue regeneration, homeostasis and therapy. In addition, the role of cancer stem cells in cancer initiation, progression and drug resistance are discussed. The cell signaling pathways and microRNA regulating stem cell self-renewal, tissue homeostasis... more...

  • Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells in Brain Diseasesby Vivi M. Heine; Stephanie Dooves; Dwayne Holmes

    Springer 2011; US$ 49.95

    Brain diseases can have a large impact on patients and society, and treatment is often not available. A new approach in which somatic cells are reprogrammed into induced pluripotent cells (iPS cells) is a significant breakthrough for regenerative medicine. This promises patient-specific tissue for replacement therapies, as well as disease-specific... more...

  • Stem Cells and Cancer Stem Cells, Volume 4by M.A. Hayat

    Springer 2012; US$ 239.00

    Vast therapeutic applications of the following specific stem cells in disease and tissue injury are discussed: embryonic stem cells, induced pluripotent stem cells, human hair follical stem cells, bone marrow-derived human mesenchymal stem cells, adipose-derived stem cells, periodontal/progenitor cells, cancer stem cells, and breast cancer stem cells.... more...

  • The Cold War Politics of Genetic Researchby William deJong-Lambert

    Springer 2012; US$ 159.00

    This book uses the reaction of a number of biologists in the United States and Great Britain to provide an overview of one of the most important controversies in Twentieth Century biology, the "Lysenko Affair". The book is written for advanced undergraduate and graduate students of history/history of science. It covers a number of topics... more...

  • Stem Cells and Cancer Stem Cells, Volume 5by M.A. Hayat

    Springer 2012; US$ 239.00

    It is pointed out that a cancer stem cell is a type within a tumor that possesses the capacity of self-renewal and can give rise to the heterogeneous lineages of cancer cells, which comprise the tumor. It is emphasized that a unique feature of cancer stem cells is that, although conventional chemotherapy kills most cells in a tumor, cancer stem cells... more...

  • Stem Cells and Cancer Stem Cells, Volume 6by M.A. Hayat

    Springer 2012; US$ 239.00

    The difference among pluripotent stem cells, multipotent stem cells, and unipotent stem cells is pointed out. Vast therapeutic applications of the following specific stem cells in disease and tissue injury are discussed: human embryonic stem cells, human mesenchymal stem cells, germ cell-derived pluripotent stem cells, induced pluripotent stem cells,... more...

  • Grundbegriffe der grünen Gentechnikby Susanne Hiekel

    Springer 2012; US$ 49.99

    Die Autorin analysiert grundlegende Begrifflichkeiten, die in der normativen Argumentation zur gr nen Gentechnik verwendet werden, und liefert damit eine philosophisch fundierte Argumentationsgrundlage. Sie geht von der Annahme aus, dass Begriffe wie z. B. Lebewesen (nat rliche) Art oder Gen in verschiedenen Bedeutungsnetzen unterschiedlich konnotiert... more...

  • Ribosomesby Marina V. Rodnina; Wolfgang Wintermeyer; Rachel Green

    Springer 2011; US$ 209.00

    The ribosome is a macromolecular machine that synthesizes proteins with a high degree of speed and accuracy. Our present understanding of its structure, function and dynamics is the result of six decades of research. This book collects over 40 articles based on the talks presented at the 2010 Ribosome Meeting, held in Orvieto, Italy, covering all facets... more...

  • Genetically Engineered Mice for Cancer Researchby Jeffrey E. Green; Thomas Ried

    Springer 2011; US$ 239.00

    Genetically-engineered mouse models for cancer research have become invaluable tools for studying cancer biology and evaluating novel therapeutic approaches. This volume focuses on state-of-the-art methods for generating, analyzing and validating such models for studying aspects of human cancer biology. Additionally, these models are emerging as important... more...
