Adipose-Derived Stem Cells: Methods and Protocols (Methods in Molecular Biology)

This second edition volume expands on the previous edition with a comprehensive update on recent developments in the Adipose Stromal/Stem Cells (ASC) field and the use of stroma vascular fraction (SVF) as a potential therapeutic strategy. The chapters in this book discuss protocols that are focused on discovery, preclinical, and clinical processes. Although most chapters focus on human ASC, there are several chapters that look at small and large animal species with pre-clinical relevance. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips in troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
Cutting-edge and thorough, Adipose-Derived Stem Cells: Methods and Protocols, Second Edition is a valuable resource for anyone interested in learning more about the scientific advances in the field of ASC biology and application.

Multipotent Stem Cells of the Hair Follicle: Methods and Protocols (Methods in Molecular Biology)

This volume discusses methods for the study of multipotent and pluripotent stem cells of the hair follicle. The stem cells described are involved in both the growth of the hair follicle and its production of the hair shaft, as well as the growth of the hair follicle sensory nerve. Multipotent Stem Cells of the Hair Follicle: Methods and Protocols also explores very unexpected results such as that of the hair follicle-associated-pluripotent (HAP) stem cells, which not only have the capability for regenerating the hair follicle sensory nerve, but also can differentiate ex vivo and in vivo to multiple cell types not associated with the hair follicle―these include glial cells, motor neurons, and beating cardiac muscle cells. The potential for HAP stem cells for regenerative medicine is also discussed in detail. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Cutting-edge and thorough, Multipotent Stem Cells of the Hair Follicle: Methods and Protocols is a valuable resource for researchers interested in this field.
