Item description for Leukocyte Trafficking: Molecular Mechanisms, Therapeutic Targets, and Methods by Alf Hamann...
Written by known specialists in the field, this is a comprehensive and timely overview of a central and expanding topic. Simultaneously an introduction and a description of the latest concepts, findings and methods, the handbook provides basic knowledge on technical issues required for those intending to research in the field. It covers the functional role of involved molecules and the cellular mechanisms, and addresses selected examples for their possible application in therapy---bridging the gap between trafficking mechanisms and novel therapeutic strategies. In addition, it includes selection of proven and timesaving methods for studying cell trafficking in vitro and in vivo.
The accompanying CD-ROM makes leukocyte migration videos available to a broad audience for the first time.
Note: CD-ROM/DVD and other supplementary materials are not included as part of eBook file.
