Patterning in Vertebrate Development by Cheryll Tickle

Book Description

One of the most fascinating problems in biology is how a single cell, the fertilised egg, gives rise to a new individual. This volume in the "Frontiers in Molecular Biology" series discusses the methods by which cells in distinct regions of an embryo become different, a process known as patterning. Patterning is fundamental to establishing the spatial organisation of the developing embryo. It ensures that all the parts of the body are generated and that they form in exactly the right places. The ultimate in patterning is the formation of precise arrangements of specialised cells and tissues within each organ. Understanding the process of patterning during the embryonic development of vertebrates is a particular challenge for developmental biologists because vertebrates have an intricate and complex anatomy and histology. The first two chapters of "Patterning in Vertebrate Development" are introductory, explaining to the reader the general principles of vertebrate patterning and early embryology. The subsequent chapters address patterning in both nervous system and specific parts of the body.

All the key principles of developmental biology that students need to know, which are underpinned throughout by experimental evidence, and an exploration of the molecular basis of the subject.

Embryos, Genes and Birth Defects by Cheryll Tickle Embryos, Genes and Birth Defects, Hardback (April 2006)

In the Western world, birth defects constitute the greatest single cause of infant mortality and a significant cause of infant morbidity, with a major impact on healthcare services and the affected families.
