About this book

The aim of the Handbooks in Practical Animal Cell Biology is to provide practical workbooks for those involved in primary cell culture. Each volume addresses a different cell lineage, and contains an introductory section followed by individual chapters on the culture of specific differentiated cell types. The authors of each chapter are leading researchers in their fields and use their first-hand experience to present reliable techniques in a clear and thorough manner. Epithelial Cell Culture contains chapters on epithelial cells derived from 1) airway, 2) intestine, 3) pancreas, 4) kidney and bladder, 5) genital ducts, 6) mammary glands, 7) skin glands and appendages, and 8) keratinocytes.

" [...] fills a major void in the literature [...] not only a useful addition to the library of an epithelial cell biology laboratory, but to any individual trying to establish primary cultures from other tissues, species, ages of donor, etc. [...] I would highly recommend this concise, clearly written book."
- C. Booth, Cell Proliferation

" [...] could serve as a useful reference for a beginner in epithelial cell culture."
- Catherine A. Reznikoff, Oncology
