Myelomonocytes are the
multipotent cells in the stage of blood cell differentiation, which mainly
comprise blood monocytes, tissue macrophages and subset of dendritic cells. The
present volume shows an extensive area of current immunology research.Topics
covered includes: Phenotypic Markers and Functional Regulators of Myelomonocytic
Cells, Dendritic Cells, The Biological Function of Kupffer Cells in Liver
Disease, The Role of Monocytes or Macrophages in HBV and HCV Infection,
Myelomonocytic Cell Lines in Modeling HIV-1 Infection of the Bone Marrow.
Cell biology is a
multidisciplinary scientific field that its modern expansion in new knowledge.
This book is a compilation of inspiring reviews/original studies, which are
divided into sections: New Methods in Cell Biology, Molecular and Cellular
Regulatory Mechanisms, and Cellular Basis of Disease and Therapy.
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
