Gives readers a complete review of present state-of -the-art in animal cell technology in Japan and other countries
Includes unique papers on animal cell technology from industrial fields which may not be published elsewhere
Gives practical information on application of animal cell technology for the production of biomedicines
Animal cell technology is a growing discipline of cell biology which aims not only to understand structures, functions and behaviors of differentiated animal cells, but also to ascertain their abilities to be used for industrial and medical purposes. The goal of animal cell technology includes the clonal expansion of differentiated cells, the optimization of their culture conditions, modulation of their ability to produce proteins of medical and pharmaceutical importantance, and the application of animal cells to gene therapy, artificial organs and the production of functional foods. This volume gives the readers a complete review of the present state-of-the-art and will be useful for those working in either academic environments or in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors, particularly cell biologists, biochemists, molecular biologists, immunologists, biochemical engineers and all other disciplines related to animal cell culture.
