Embryonic Stem Cells

Pluripotent stem cells have the potential to revolutionise medicine, providing treatment options for a wide range of diseases and conditions that currently lack therapies or cures. This book describes recent advances in the generation of tissue specific cell types for regenerative applications, as well as the obstacles that need to be overcome in order to recognize the potential of these cells.

Progress in Heritable Soft Connective Tissue Diseases

This volume is a reference handbook focusing on diseases like Marfan syndrome, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Loeys-Dietz syndrome and other heritable soft connective tissue diseases. The book presents detailed information for both basic scientists and for clinicians seeing patients. It is also a stepping stone for new investigations and studies that goes beyond the facts about the composition and biochemistry of the connective tissue and extracellular matrix, as the authors connect individual components to specific aspects of various soft tissue disorders and to the actual or potential treatment of them. Progress in Heritable Soft Connective Tissue Diseases features very prominent physicians and scientists as contributors who bring their most recent discoveries to the benefit of readers. Their expertise will help clinicians with proper diagnosis of sometimes elusive and uncommon heritable diseases of soft connective tissues. This book also offers an update on the pathophysiology of these diseases, including an emphasis on unifying aspects such as connections between embryonic development of the different types of connective tissues and systems, and the role of TGF-beta in development and physiology of soft tissues. This new set of data explains, at least in part, why many of these disorders are interconnected, though the primary pathophysiological events, such as gene mutations, may be different for each disorder.

Handbook of Growth Factors

Handbook of Growth Factors, Volume III is devoted to hematopoiesis and its regulation by endogenous factors with growth stimulatory and growth inhibitory properties. The book provides detailed discussions on signaling agents related to the regulation of hematopoiesis, including the interleukins, the colony-stimulating factors, the interferons, the tumor necrosis factors, the erythropoietic growth factors, the platelet-derived growth factor, the leukemia inhibitory factor, and the transferrins. The structure and function of each factor is covered in detail, as well as its receptor and postreceptor mechanism of action and its possible role in neoplastic processes. The book also explores the present state of the knowledge about megakaryocyte growth factors and macrophage-derived growth factors.

Hematopoietic Stem Cells VII

A fundamental property of hematopoetic stem cells is their capacity to self-renew, thus providing, in principle, a limitless source of daughter cells and with the same functional properties. This volume presents the most recent developments, and their clinical implications, in hematopoietic stem cell research. The field of hematopoietic stem cell biology is rapidly advancing and new ideas and concepts supported by new technologies provide new discoveries. Topics covered are genetic and epigenetic regulation of stem cells, stem cell plasticity, stem cell regulation and self-renewal, and embryonic stem cells as well as malignant stem cell biology.
