Cell Fusion: Overviews and Methods by Kurt Pfannkuche

By Kurt Pfannkuche

This quantity information protocols on detection and research of fusion occasions in a number of cellphone varieties in vitro and in vivo. extra, protocols goal to facilitate the long run hugely suitable means of engineering cells for particular reasons, akin to new release of transgenic embryos and improvement of hybrid cells, on the way to take on particular projects in telephone biology and drugs. Written for the Methods in Molecular Biology sequence, chapters comprise introductions to their respective issues, lists of the mandatory fabrics and reagents, step by step, simply reproducible laboratory protocols, and pointers on troubleshooting and warding off recognized pitfalls.

Practical and authoritative, Cell Fusion: Overviews and techniques, moment Edition serves as an awesome reference on phone fusion and laboratory protocols.

However, it had also been shown that the nature of CSC is variable in different cancer types and that CSCs are not necessarily more resistant or slower proliferating than the rest of the tumor cell population [130–133]. Thus, one challenge to overcome in cancer treatment strategies is defining the characterization of these cell subpopulations in the tumor mass. Several studies have shown that cell fusion occurs in solid cancers in vivo between tumor cells and tumor cells or tumor cells and other cells of the tumor environment [40, 41, 86, 90, 134].
