Ions, Cell Proliferation, and Cancer present the credibility of ions as specific regulators of cell proliferation. This book provides an understanding of the control of cell proliferation and the deregulated proliferation of cancer cells. Organized into three sections encompassing 32 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the important role that ions in animal cells play in a variety of fundamental processes associated with essential cell functions. This text then examines the relationship between ionic events and cellular production, specifically in mammalian cell systems. Other chapters consider the development of atomic absorption spectrophotometry as a method for measuring inorganic cations. This book discusses as well the two widely applicable methods for measuring free concentrations of ions inside cells. The final chapter deals with magnesium ion as the most abundant divalent action in living cells. This book is a valuable resource for animal cell biologists, molecular biologists, and research workers.
