Cover design by Patricia F. Cleary

Cover illustrations: (Foreground) Reprogramming of DNA methylation during mouse preimplantation development: from the two-cell stage onwards, there is passive loss of DNA methylation attributable to exclusion of the maintenance DNA methyltransferase from the nucleus; de novo methylation is evident in the inner cell mass at the blastocyst stage. The upper row shows 5-Methylcytosine staining, and the lower row shows DNA staining in the same embryo (Fig. 1, Chap. 11; see complete figure and caption on p. 130 and discussion on pp. 130-131). (Background) Piezo-assisted injection of a cumulus cell nucleus into an MII oocyte (Fig. 3, Chap. 10; see complete caption and discussion on pp. 122-123).

Diabetes 2

Diabetes is a disease that affects the way your body uses food. Normally, your body converts sugars, starches and other foods into a form of sugar called glucose. Your body uses glucose for fuel. The cells receive the glucose through the bloodstream. They then use insulin a hormone made by the pancreas to absorb the glucose, convert it into energy, and either use it or store it for later use.
