  • disease
  • This volume explores techniques used to study and experiment with Xenopus in order to model or understand human disease. (springer.com)
  • This book will aid in keeping Xenopus at the forefront for biochemical, cell biological, and developmental studies and forward it as a preclinical disease model. (springer.com)
  • cell
  • Xenopus has long been an important tool for in vivo studies in molecular, cell, and developmental biology of vertebrate animals. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, the wide breadth of Xenopus research stems from the additional fact that cell-free extracts made from Xenopus are a premier in vitro system for studies of fundamental aspects of cell and molecular biology. (wikipedia.org)
