Methods in Toxicology, Volume 1: In Vitro Biological Systems, Part A provides basic techniques employed by widely recognized scientists to prepare and maintain the biological components of in vitro model systems. The book discusses the in vitro models of neural and neuromuscular systems; ocular system; respiratory system; cardiovascular system; and gastrointestinal system. The text also describes liver slices; liver hepatocytes; other liver cell systems; proximal tubule fragments; kidney cell culture; reproductive and developmental systems; immune system; and skin. Pharmacologists, toxicologists, cell biologists, physiologists, immunotoxicologists, and molecular toxicologists will find the book invaluable.
