This handy reference handbook describes the fundamental principles and procedures underlying the successful isolation of viable, functionally-intact cells from mammalian endocrine tissues, and their maintenance as primary cultures. The cell types selected for coverage illustrate the diversity of endocrine tissues from which cells have been isolated, and the range of procedures which have been devised to ensure the optimal survival and behaviour of each cell type under study. Particular emphasis has been placed on the provision of detailed protocols describing, step by step, the manipulations necessary to establish differentiated and responsive cultures. The chapters have been prepared by authors having direct practical experience of the cell type concerned, and the reader is therefore provided with first-hand accounts on the background to each procedure, the avoidance of potential problems and pitfalls, and the fundamental questions in endocrinology which may be addressed using each cell culture model.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'No one other book presents a collection of such contributions of the highest interest for all cellular and molecular biologists and we are sure that this booklet will meet a true great success, what we sincerely wish to it!' R. Wegmann, Cellular and Molecular Biology
' ... the book will be useful to graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in the laboratory having to prepare primary cultures of endocrine cells.' Mario Vallejo, TEM
'Crystal clear cell culture advice. You'll want to wrap it in plastic and keep it on the lab bench ... one of the most enjoyable and informative books that I have read in recent years.' Elaine Hemers, British Society of Cell Biology
'Crystal clear cell culture advice. You'll want to wrap it in plastic and keep it on the lab bench.' Gareth Cuttle, BSDB Newsletter
"The book will be a valuable reference for investigators who are interested in signal transduction and tyrosine phosphorylation. It brings together a large amount of information from a wide variety of sources." The Quarterly Review of Biology
