The book Cell Interaction focuses on various processes that occur within and outside the cells. Cell interactions are important for functioning of many organ systems: cell adhesion, tissue development, cellular communication, inflammation, tumor metastasis, and microbial infection. Key features include developmental cell interactions, immune and neural cell interactions, cell interactions in normal and disease conditions and advanced level methods to evaluate cell interactions.

Mistletoe extracts have immunomodulatory activity. We
show that nontoxic concentrations ofViscumalbumextracts
increase natural killer (NK) cell-mediated killing of tumor
cells but spare nontarget cells from NK lysis. The com-pounds responsible for this bioactivity were isolated from
mistletoe and characterized. They have low molecular mass
and are thermostable and protease-resistant.
Residue Leu10 of substance P (SP) is critical for NK-1
receptor recognition and agonist activity. In order to probe
the bioactive conformation of this residue,cis-andtrans-3-substituted prolinoleucines were introduced in position 10
of SP. The substituted SP analogues were tested for their
affinity to humanNK-1 receptor specific binding sites (NK-1M and NK-1m) and their potency to stimulate adenylate
cyclase and phospholipase C in CHO cells transfected with
the human NK-1 receptor.
