Die tierische Zelle in Zellkultur by Richard Schindler

By Richard Schindler

Die ersten erfolgreichen Versuche zur Züchtung tierischer Zellen außerhalb des Organismus reichen zurück in den Beginn unseres Jahrhunderts. 1907 gelang HARRI­ SON durch Explantation von Gewebsstücken aus Froschembryonen der Nachweis, daß in der Embryonalentwicklung die Neuriten als Fortsätze der Nervenzelle ohne Be­ teiligung anderer Zellen gebildet werden, und daß damit eine spezifische celluläre Funktion auch außerhalb des Gesamtorganismus zu beobachten ist [310,311]. Außer­ dem konnte CARREL 1912 zeigen, daß es bei Verwendung einer geeigneten Nährlö­ sung und deren regelmäßiger Erneuerung möglich ist, Kulturen tierischer Gewebe beliebig lange im Zustand aktiver Proliferation und Zellvermehrung zu erhalten [76]. Die Methodik CARRELS warfare derjenigen von HARRISON recht ähnlich: in bei den Fällen wurden die Kulturen durch Einbettung eines kleinen Gewebsstückes in ein Gel - im einen Fall bestehend aus einer Mischung von Blutplasma und Embryo­ extrakt, im anderen aus Froschlymphe - hergestellt. In der Zielsetzung jedoch unter­ scheiden sich die beschriebenen Versuche voneinander in grundsätzlicher Weise. HARRISON ging es um die Untersuchung einer spezifischen Funktion unter Bedingun­ gen in vitro, während CARRELS Bemühungen auf die unbeschränkte Fortsetzung der Zellvermehrung außerhalb des Gesamtorganismus ausgerichtet waren. Es zeigte sich schon bald, daß im allgemeinen Zellfunktion und Zell vermehrung in vitro gewissermaßen antagonistische Prozesse darstellen. Nach Explantation eines Gewebsstückes in einem Plasma-Gel läßt sich nämlich nach kurzer Zeit eine zuneh­ mende Desorganisation, vor allem an den Rändern des Gewebsstückes, durch Zell­ auswanderung und Zellteilung beobachten [520]. Mit dem Verlust der spezifischen Struktur geht dann meist auch ein Verlust der typischen Zellfunktionen einher.

Breast Cancer 4: Advances in Research and Treatment by Robert B. Livingston (auth.), William L. McGuire M.D. (eds.)

By Robert B. Livingston (auth.), William L. McGuire M.D. (eds.)

This is the fourth e-book in a chain facing breast melanoma. Volumes 1-3 have been occupied with therapy, experimental biology, and a few diversified well timed subject matters. the current quantity maintains to study the breast melanoma box within the broadest feel. the 1st bankruptcy addresses the query of choosing acceptable chemotherapy for the sufferer. within the Seventies, nice advances have been obvious in our skill to accomplish goal tumor regression with empirical combina­ tions of chemotherapeutic brokers. the following decade will specialise in targeted tips on how to choose these brokers prone to have the best profit in person sufferers. Livingston has supplied us with a radical evaluation of the present cutting-edge. we've got identified for it slow that steroid hormone receptor assays of substantial worth to clinicians taking care of sufferers with complicated illness. Osborne and associates now current huge arguments that receptor assays also are necessary within the surroundings of fundamental breast melanoma for reasons of either diagnosis and therapy procedure. a vital scientific challenge which has acquired little cognizance within the learn laboratory is benign breast ailment. If one inquires concerning the clinical treatment of this disease within the usa, it truly is noticeable that almost all of physicians might savour a greater figuring out of the pathophysiology which would bring about better remedies. Mauvais-Jarvis and associates offer us with such an account from their broad experience.
