Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Updates the understanding of the biological and physiological role of the lysosomal system, furthering the effort to systemize the voluminous information being generated by research. The core section of the 12 review papers consider lysosome metabolism; other sections describe how the lysosome components and substrates for digestion are delivered, and how the lysosome interacts with its cytoplasmic environment. The lysosomal metabolism is treated for proteins, glyco-conjugates, lipids, nucleic acids, and phosphate. Other topics include endocytosis, autophagy metabolite efflux and influx across the lysosome membrane, and pharmacology and toxicology. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

'The heterogeneity of topics...is very ambitious, and the result is, overall, successful because of the high quality of the individual contributions...highly recommended.'
Amercian Scientist.

'Well written and timely...of interest to all those involved in the study of this organelle and for those interested in the medical and genetic aspects of lysosomal disorders...recommended.'
Journal of Medical Genetics
