Mit Hilfe des 'Tissue Engineering' konnten in den vergangenen zehn Jahren große Fortschritte bei der Züchtung von künstlichem Gewebe erzielt werden. Künstliche Gewebe werden heute bereits zum Ersatz verbrannter Hautbereiche z.B. in der plastischen Chirurgie oder zum Aufbau verletzter Knorpelstrukturen eingesetzt. Dieses besonders umfangreich und anschaulich illustrierte Praktikerbuch vermittelt die grundlegenden Einblicke in die komplexe Welt der Gewebeentstehung und der Züchtung von künstlichem Gewebe mit Hilfe des 'Tissue Engineering'. Einführend werden die Grundlagen der Zellbiologie und Gewebeentstehung und des weiteren der Gewebezüchtung behandelt. Ein besonderes Augenmerk legen die Autoren auf die Mechanismen der Gewebedifferenzierung und die kritische Bewertung von Eigenschaften in reifenden Gewebekonstrukten. Gesicherte therapeutische Erfolge beim 'Tissue Engineering' werden nur dann erzielt, wenn die reifenden Gewebekonstrukte zuverlässig die gewünschten funktionellen Eigenschaften entwickeln. Ein zweiter Schwerpunkt dieses Buches liegt auf der Anwendung von Stammzellen unterschiedlichster Herkunft beim 'Tissue Engineering'. Es reicht nicht aus, Stammzellen zu isolieren und zu vermehren, vielmehr müssen daraus sorgfältig gesteuert funktionelle Gewebe entwickelt werden. Abgerundet wird dieses Buch durch ein außergewöhnlich umfangreiches Glossar, das rund 1000 Stichwörter aus Zellbiologie, Gewebekulturtechnik und 'Tissue Engineering' enthält.

Metabolic engineering is a new field with applications in the production of chemicals, fuels, materials, pharmaceuticals, and medicine at the genetic level. The field's novelty is in the synthesis of molecular biology techniques and the tools of mathematical analysis, which allow rational selection of targets for genetic modification through measurements and control of metabolic fluxes. The objective is to identify specific genetics or environmental manipulations that result in improvements in yield and productivities of biotechnological processes. Key features of the book are pathway integration and the focus on metabolic flux as a fundamental determinant of cell physiology. The book keeps mathematical complexity to a minimum, and provides a glossary of biological terms to facilitate use of the book by a broader spectrum of readers. A web page exists to communicate updates of the codes and homework problems. Demonstrates metabolic engineering in action with numerous examples of pathway modification Includes methods for identifying key enzymes in metabolic networks Contains a comprehensive review of metabolic biochemistry Discusses metabolic regulation at the gene, enzyme, operon, and cell levels Explains concepts of stoichiometry, kinetics, and thermodynamics of metabolic pathways Minimizes mathematical complexity Links to a Web page to communicate updates of the software code and homework problems
