Koka (Torrey Pines Institute for Molecular Studies) gathers contributors from the US, Europe, Australia, and Israel to present the latest stem cell research. Some areas covered include stem cells as therapy for cardiovascular disease, human chimerism and tetragametism, the importance of large animal models in stem cell research, and mathematical modeling of T cell differentiation from hemopoietic stem cell progenitors. Other topics include signal pathways involved in the maintenance of human embryonic stem cells, diminished gene expression of human Mesenchymal stem cells by mutation of focal adhesion kinase signaling, and the effects of ex vivo expansion on the differentiation of umbilical cord blood-derived CD34+ cells. B&w and color illustrations and images are included.
