About this book

This volume highlights valuable new knowledge and technological progress resulting from a special 4-year research project in Japan on the molecular mechanisms underlying the maintenance of germ lines in animals and man. The 19 selected topics focus on the molecular mechanisms of gamete differentiation, fertilization, nidation and placentation, and blastomere differentiation in early mammalian development. Taken together, they provide readers with an overview of the state of the art of reproductive biology in Japan.
