The peroxisome is a cellular organelle which performs a vital role in animals and plants.
This book will be of most interest to undergraduates, postgraduates, and researchers who are interested in the biochemistry of the peroxisome, and in understanding its role in the cell with respect to other subcellular organelles. The Biochemist "This well-organized and clearly illustrated book synthesizes the results of nearly 500 papers on structure, enzymology, genetics, regulation, and proliferation of peroxisomes. Summaries and suggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter make the book useful to those with little knowledge of the field. Although directed primarily at postgraduate researchers in biochemistry, cell biology, and pathology, senior undergraduates with a good understanding of enzymology and lipid biochemistry will also find the book useful." Choice "This succinct, well-written monograph is both current and comprehensive...Its wide scope will make it useful to specialists in the field as well as to biologists who are ignorant of this fascinating and ubiquitous structure..." Sidney Goldfischer, Science "The authors are well respected researchers in this field and have produced an authoritative and readable text, with numerous illustrations and chapter summaries." Cambridge Scientific Abstracts "This succint, well-written monograph is both current and comprehensive and covers the enzymology, morphology, genetics, biogenesis, and ontogeny of peroxisomes in animals and plants..." Sidney Goldfisher, Science
