Formation of the Heart and its Regulation
Robert J. Tomanek, Robert B. Runyan
Springer Science & Business Media, May 18, 2001 - Science - 276 pages
The 'Formation of the Heart and its Regulation' reviews in considerable detail the major events in heart development and their control via genes, cell-cell interactions, growth factors and other contributing elements. In addition, there is an extensive and useful overview of the field of heart development taken as a whole. The book appeals to all students and researchers working on cardiovascular development and to pediatric cardiologists.
