Open Access Medical Books


Edited by Sivakumar Gowder .
332 pages .

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. This book comprises many chapters - cell interaction of anuran model; role of transmitters in blastomere interactions; new generation of vaccines by using dendrite cells; role of stress induced molecules in NK cell activity; ligand-induced cell adhesion in synapse formation; interaction between the immune system and nervous system; understanding of bone cell interactions in health and disease; cell-cell interactions and cross talk in normal and pathological
conditions of tissues and organs; addition of oligonucleotides to increase the efficiency of homologous recombination; development of liposomes for gene delivery; micropatterned coatings in dental implantology and analysis of cell interaction by imaging flow cytometry. This book will be a significant resource to all scientists and physicians who are intended to explore more on cells. It is my privilege to present this
book for your reading.
I extend my gratitude towards my mother, my late father and my brothers for introducing me to higher education. My thanks to higher authorities, and colleagues of Qassim University for their motivation to carry out this project. I am continuously indebted to my wife Anitha for her encouragement and technical support on this project. I also acknowledge the interest and commitment from the Publishing Process Manager of InTech Mr. Vedran Greblo whose patience and focus were of immense support in this project. Finally, I express deep and sincere gratitude to all the authors for their valuable contributions and scholarly cooperation and for timely completion of this book.
