Description

International Review of Connective Tissue Research covers a broad range of aspects of connective tissue metabolism and structure, and other relevant material in the field of connective tissue research. The book discusses topics on the immunological reactions of collagen macromolecules and their degradation products; the factors involved in the specific control of collagen protein synthesis; effect of ionizing radiation on connective tissue components; and the physical properties of connective tissue. Physiologists, pathologists and researchers in the field of medicine will find the book invaluable.
