Culture of Specialized Cells
CULTURE OF EPITHELIAL CELLS, Second Edition
Edited by R. Ian Freshney and Mary G. Freshney

"It is now the age of the specialized cell in culture," R. Ian Freshney wrote in the preface to the first edition of Culture of Epithelial Cells. Realizing the inadequacy of studying all types of cells at random in a culture, it became imperative for researchers to learn how unique cells perform under a wide variety of conditions. Now the Second Edition of Culture of Epithelial Cells—devoted to those cells that line the body, internally and externally, protecting surfaces and secreting or absorbing material—advances this ethic, providing completely revised, detailed descriptions of fundamental and practical aspects relating to the in vitro cultivation of disparate types of epithelia.

Each chapter of the Second Edition is devoted to a different type of epithelium—epidermal, mammary, cervical, prostatic, oral, intestinal, pulmonary, hepatic, and urothelial. R. Ian Freshney also contributes a final chapter on a number of epithelia not covered in the main chapters, presenting them together in review form with additional protocols. Other features of the Second Edition of Culture of Epithelial Cells include:
* Proven methods refined by the authors, all well-established researchers
* Alternate techniques coupled with critical comparative analyses
* Logical anatomical organization by tissue type
* Stepwise culture protocols conveniently highlighted
* New chapters on the culture of oral, alveolar, intestinal, and urothelial epithelium
* In-depth analysis of cell-cell interaction in skin

Displaying the clear, easy-to-follow style that has become a trademark of the Culture of Specialized Cells series, the Second Edition of Culture of Epithelial Cells remains an essential resource for researchers in cell and developmental biology, cancer biology, tissue engineering, biochemistry, and genetics, where the work requires the cultivation or manipulation of cells from the epithelium.
