One of the most unique physical features of cell
adhesion to external surfaces is the active generation of mechanical force at
the cell-material interface. This includes pulling forces generated by contractile polymer bundles and networks, and pushing forces
generated by the polymerization of polymer networks. Topics covered includes: Physics of cell-matrix adhesions, Cell shape and
forces, Active response of cells, Cell assemblies
This book is written to clarify some aspects of stem cell biology, their
characteristics, assessment of damage to cells during ex vivo manipulation and
also their role in a model of cancers. Topics covered includes: Regulators of
the Proliferation of Hematopoietic Stem and Progenitor Cells During
Hematopoietic Regeneration, Hematopoietic Stem Cell Niche, Hematopoietic Stem
Cells in Chronic Myeloid Leukemia.
