About this book

International Review of Cytology presents current advances and comprehensive reviews in cell biology - both plant and animal. Articles address structure and control of gene expression, nucleocytoplasmic interactions, control of cell development and differentiation, and cell transformation and growth. Authored by some of the foremost scientists in the field, each volume provides up-to-date information and directions for future research. It features: Control of Genes by Mammalian Retroposons; Human Mitochondrial Diseases; Occludin and the Functions of Tight Jurisdictions; Pattern Formation and Cell Differentiation: Trichomes in Arabidopsis as a Genetic Model System; The Armadillo Family of Structural Proteins; HGF in Kidney Development and Regeneration; and, Nature and Role of Proteasomes in Maturation of Fish Oocytes.

Praise for the Series "Invaluable reading for all biologists." --NATURE "In keeping with the high standards set by the editors... carefully prepared and edited in the customary fine format and well-illustrated style of Academic Press publications... this series is a significant contribution to a science that impinges on many fields." --THE QUARTERLY REVIEW OF BIOLOGY "A valuable addition to any college library as current reference material for advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and professional scientists." --CHOICE "Maintains the tradition and set-up of the previous volumes and certainly provides up-to-date data on varied aspects of cytology... a valuable acquisition to any library." --THE NUCLEUS "Should be on the shelf of any biomedical library." --Alvin Tesler, Northwestern Medical School, in DOODY'S
