Myelomonocytes are the
multipotent cells in the stage of blood cell differentiation, which mainly
comprise blood monocytes, tissue macrophages and subset of dendritic cells. The
present volume shows an extensive area of current immunology research.Topics
covered includes: Phenotypic Markers and Functional Regulators of Myelomonocytic
Cells, Dendritic Cells, The Biological Function of Kupffer Cells in Liver
Disease, The Role of Monocytes or Macrophages in HBV and HCV Infection,
Myelomonocytic Cell Lines in Modeling HIV-1 Infection of the Bone Marrow.
This lecture note explains the basic
concepts, facts, and principles of cell biology at the molecular level and to
develop basic skills to read current cell biology literature and to develop
basic understanding of the integration of engineering with biology.
