Description

Current Topics in Developmental Biology provides a comprehensive survey of the major topics in the field of developmental biology. The volumes are valuable to researchers in animal and plant development, as well as to students and professionals who want an introduction to cellular and molecular mechanisms of development. The series has recently passed its 30-year mark, making it the longest-running forum for contemporary issues in developmental biology. Volume 68, the most recent publication in Current Topics in Developmental Biology, not only discusses the most up-to-date discoveries, it includes 46 figures and 7 tables, all in full color. This volume touches upon topics such as Prolactin and Growth Hormone Signaling; Corpus Luteum Development: Lessons from Genetic Models in Mice; Comparative Developmental Biology of the Mammalian Uterus; Sarcopenia of Aging and its Metabolic Impact; and even a chapter on Initial failure in Myoblast Transplantation Therapy has led the way towards the isolation of muscle stem cells: Potential for tissue regeneration.
