Reproductive tissue banking: scientific principles.

Author(s) : KAROW A. M., CRITSER J. K.

Type of monograph: Book


This book presents the scientific principles underlying tissue banking. These examples serve as models for the technology of banking other living tissues, including blood, bone marrow, cornea, and skin. In discussing research emerging from their laboratories and those of others, the seventeen authors who contributed to the book meld fundamentals of biology, chemistry, and physics. Extract from the table of contents: utility of viable tissue ex vivo: banking of reproductive cells and tissues; tissue maturation in vivo and in vitro: gamete and early embryo ontogeny; metabolic support of normothermia; pharmacological interventions in vitro; hypothermia and mammalian gametes; fundamental cryobiology of mammalian spermatozoa; the cryobiology of mammalian oocytes; cryopreservation of multicellular embryos and reproductive tissues; genome resource banking: impact on biotic conservation and society; implications of tissue banking for human reproductive medicine.
