Molecular & Cell Biology of the Liver

Front Cover
CRC Press, Jun 24, 1993 - Medical - 560 pages
Molecular and Cell Biology of the Liver features the latest research findings regarding liver structure and function. A unique feature of the book is the brief science reviews that are included in each chapter which provide essential background information to allow readers to better grasp the subject matter within a chapter. The book covers liver biology from the molecular level to groups of liver cells and explains how groups of hepatocytes interact in similar microenvironments. Other important cell types found in the liver are also examined. Illustrations ranging from electron micrographs to fully rendered drawings act as visual aids to help readers understand complex structural-functional interactions. Molecular and Cell Biology of the Liver will benefit hepatologists, gastroenterologists, cell biologists, anatomists, toxicologists, and other researchers interested in liver structure and function.
