This book is the first attempt to summarize the current progress in cell surface engineering. Most of the topics currently associated with this area were covered in the preceding chapters. Cell surface engineering is currently in its infancy, with the most interesting and promising ideas yet to be realized. Today, we are apparently witnessing the quiet revolution in our understanding of manipulations that can be performed under the living cell. The paradigm of cell surface engineering implies that the surfaces of single isolated cells can be deliberately modified by attaching the foreign particles or films onto the cellular membranes. Unlike...
