Description

Angiogenesis is the growth of new blood vessels and is an important natural process in the body. A healthy body maintains a perfect balance of angiogenesis modulators. In many serious disease states, however, the body loses control over antiogenesis. Diseases that are angiogensis-dependent result when blood vessels either grow excessively or insufficiently.

Key Features

  • Tried-and-tested techniques written by researchers that developed them, used them, and brought them to fruition

  • Provides the "builder's manual" for essential techniques--a one-stop shop that eliminates needless searching among untested techniques

  • Includes step-by-step methods for understanding the cell and molecular basis of wound healing, vascular integrin signaling, mechanical signaling in blood vessels, and vascular proteomics

Readership

Researchers in biochemistry, cell and molecular biology, physiology, neurology, oncology, pathology, cardiology, rheumatology, opthamology, and genetics
