Description

Organ Culture provides information pertinent to the fundamental aspects of the study of autodifferentiation. This book discusses the physiological differentiation, the action of substances that inhibit or stimulate growth, and the interactions of associated organs.

Organized into 10 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the differentiation of embryonic organs in natural media. This text then presents the study of differentiation in synthetic solid or liquid media and explains the biochemical and physiological requirements of the tissues. Other chapters consider the problems of sexual differentiation and intersexuality in vitro by providing a comparative study of avian and mammalian embryos. This book analyzes as well the interactions between hormones, inhibitor substances, and receptor organs in vitro. The final chapter deals with the study of organ chimeras in vitro and the related study of the organ culture of malignant tumors.

This book is a valuable resource for embryologists and research workers.
