In this second edition of a popular and widely acclaimed collection of laboratory methods, a panel of leading authorities have thoroughly brought up-to-date and optimized its cell culture techniques for a broad range of human cell types relevant to human disease. Each technique can be used to investigate a wide spectrum of important processes, ranging from the pathogenesis of disease, to the study of metabolic processes, to control of proliferation and differentiation. New to this edition are chapters on fibroblasts, Schwann cells, gastric and colonic epithelial cells, and parathyroid cells. The protocols follow the successful Methods in Molecular MedicineTM series format, each offering step-by-step laboratory instructions, an introduction outlining the principle behind the technique, lists of the necessary equipment and reagents, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Wide-ranging and highly practical, Human Cell Culture, Second Edition, provides novice and experienced researchers alike with a detailed, step-by-step guide to successful culture human cells today.
