We are pleased to offer our committee’s report on guidelines for human embryonic
stem cell research. This report and its recommendations are the result of many
hours of committee meetings as well as a public workshop. During those sessions we
heard from many dedicated and talented people who represent a wide range of
views. We have tried to take these diverse perspectives into account in a report that
mirrors the seriousness with which we have reflected upon them.
Stem cell research has the potential to affect the lives of millions
of people in the United States and around the world.
This research is now regularly front-page news because of the
controversy surrounding the derivation of stem cells from
human embryos. Realizing the promise of stem cells for
yielding new medical therapies will require us to grapple with
more than just scientific uncertainties. The stem cell debate
has led scientists and nonscientists alike to contemplate
profound issues, such as who we are and what makes us
This book documents the increased number of stem cell related research, basic and clinical applications as well as views for the future. The book covers a wide range of issues related to new developments and innovations in cell-based therapies containing basic and clinical chapters from the respected authors involved in stem cell studies and research around the world.
The editor has incorporated scientific contributions from a diverse group of leading
researchers in the field of hematology and related blood cell research. This book aims
to provide an overview of current knowledge pertaining to our understanding of
hematology. The main subject areas will include blood cell morphology and function,
the pathophysiology and genetics of hematological disorders and malignancies, blood
testing and typing, and the processes governing hematopoiesis. Blood cell physiology,
biochemistry and blood flow are covered in this book....
The transcription factor p63 plays a pivotal role in the development and maintenance of epithelial tissues, including the ocular surface. In an effort to gain insight into the pathogenesis of keratitis caused by HSV-1, we determined the expression patterns of the p63 and Bax proteins in the Staatens Seruminstitute Rabbit Cornea cell line (SIRC). Methods: SIRC cells were infected with HSV-1 at various multiplicities and maintained for different periods of time. Virus replication was measured by indirect immunofluorescence assay and Western blot analysis.

This is the first book to cover the history, structure, and application of atomic force microscopy in cell biology. Presented in the clear, well-illustrated style of the Methods in Cell Biology series, it introduces the atomic force microscope (AFM) to its readers and enables them to tap the power and scope of this technology to further their own research. A practical laboratory guide for use of the atomic force and photonic force microscopes, it provides updated technology and methods in force spectroscopy.
The B vitamins are eight water-soluble vitamins that play important roles in cell
metabolism. Historically, the B vitamins were once thought to be a single vitamin, referred to
as Vitamin B (much like how people refer to Vitamin C or Vitamin D). Later research
showed that they are chemically distinct vitamins that often coexist in the same foods.
Supplements containing all eight B vitamins are generally referred to as a vitamin B complex.
Individual B vitamin supplements are referred to by the specific name of each vitamin (e.g.
B1, B2, B3).
A global research community of scientists is teasing out the biochemical mechanisms that regulate normal cellular physiology in a variety of organisms. Much of current research aims to understand the network of molecular reactions that regulate cellular homeostasis, and to learn what allows cells to sense stress and activate appropriate biochemical responses.
From within the small yet growing body of research focused upon CAM use for pregnancy
[2,5], the majority has examined pregnant women’s use of discrete supplements or treatments
and, despite recommendations [23,24], there has been little exploration of women’s
consultations with CAM practitioners. One exception is a recent longitudinal cohort study
(n=535)  which identified no significant change in this prevalence rate over a 10 year
period compared with non-pregnant women.
For cell-based bone tissue engineering, various tissues derived cells are utilized since
osteogenic cells can be harvested from bone marrow, periosteum, and adipose tissue,
though recent studies indicate that bone marrow stromal cells (BMSCs, bone marrow
derived multipotent mesenchymal stromal cells, or mesenchymal stem cells) are the most
reliable cell source because of their superior osteogenic ability (Hayashi et al., 2008).
However, it is difficult to obtain adequate numbers of transplantable BMSCs from bone
marrow aspirates, as they are rare in the bone marrow (less than 0.
According to the definition, electrochemical cells are the devices transferring electrical
energy from chemical reactions into electricity, or helping chemical processes through
the introduction of electrical energy or electrical field. A common example in this
category is battery, which has evolved into a big family and is currently used in all
kinds of applications.
The purpose of this book is to provide an up-to-date view of latest research advances in the design of efficient small-scale energy harvesters through contributions of internationally recognized researchers. The book covers the physics of the energy conversion, the elaboration of electroactive materials and their application to the conception of a complete microgenerator, and is organized according to the input energy source.
Research in starch biosynthesis is likely to have a great impact on agriculture
and industry in coming years. Although the original purpose of research
into starch synthesis was not industrial application, it is an example of how
science, while trying to answer fundamental questions, may lead to the
manipulation of nature for beneficial purposes.
Although the basic studies of starch synthesis were carried out in England
during the 1940s, and led to the discovery of phosphorylase and Q-enzyme
(branching enzyme), the basis of our modern ideas originated in Argentina
from the work of Luis F.
Hydrogen and fuel cells are seen by many as key solutions
for the 21st century, enabling clean efficient production of
power and heat from a range of primary energy sources. The High Level Group for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Technologies was initiated in October 2002 by the Vice President of the European Commission, Loyola de Palacio, Commissioner for Energy and Transport, and Mr Philippe Busquin, Commissioner for Research.
