Tissue Culture Technology Applicable to Arterial Mesenchyme

  • Sergey Fedoroff
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 43)


Tissue culture, since its inception at the turn of this century, has undergone several stages in its evolution. During the first 40 or 50 years the main emphasis was on observation of cell growth and an overall fascination with the technique. During the second phase of 15 to 20 years the emphasis was on growing large numbers of cells, producing cell populations for quantitative work, and studying neoplastic transformation. Methods were developed which produced cells by the pound. In the third and present phase emphasis is placed on the analysis of cellular interaction, cell differentiation, cell function and, in general, on finding answers to specific questions related to in vivo phenomena.
