About this book


Cultured cells have combined accessibility and the ability to expand a homogeneous cell population from a relatively limited source, thus opening up a wealth of possibilities for researchers. In Mouse Cell Culture: Methods and Protocols, expert researchers provide a number of methods for the culture of a wide range of specific cells and tissues isolated from the key genetic model of the fetal or adult mouse. Including protocols for the explant of fetal tissues and stem cells that allow developmental processes to be followed ex vivo as well as protocols for the culture of isolated cell types that allow for the study of relatively homogeneous cell populations, this volume brings together a selection of the most current methods in order to make them available in one convenient source. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and notes on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Practical and authoritative, Mouse Cell Culture: Methods and Protocols serves as an immediately applicable springboard for the development of new tissue culture methods in order to advance the study and treatment of human disorders.
