Book Description

December 14, 2006 0521035082 978-0521035088 1
This description of a model system for cell differentiation and organogenesis is written by one of the foremost researchers in the area. The main emphasis is on the mammalian kidney, but the book also deals with the development of the transien excretory organs. It includes discussions of induction, proliferation, early cytodifferentiation and morphogenesis and organogenesis. This authoritative account will be valuable to developmental biologists and also to scientists working in paediatric nephrology. As it gives the background of normal development and of control systems, it will also be of use to nephrologists working on abnormalities in the urinary tract.

Editorial Reviews

Book Description

Although this description of a model system for cell differentation and organogenesis emphasizes the mammalian kidney, detailed coverage is also given to the development of the transient excretory organs.

5.0 out of 5 stars a classic November 18, 2002
This wonderful book is still referenced in almost every scientific paper published on kidney development some 15 years after it was written. The subject matter is essential background reading for anyone interested in induction of the kidney. Due to the timeless nature of the experiments described and the fundamental insights into organogenesis that they provide this will probably hold true in another 15 years. There are few scientific texts that one can read from cover to cover without becoming distracted, saturated or simply bored but this is an exception. The writing is extremely lucid and while addressing all key points remains concise and interesting throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best source for mammalian kidney development May 26, 2000
By A Customer
Excellent text covering nephrogenesis: in vivo and transfilter culture. Includes useful illustrations, photos of phase, brightfield and electron microscopy, lectin and antibody fluorescence staining and experimental data. Only downside: 1987 edition begging for update.
