International Review of Cytology presents current advances and comprehensive reviews in cell biology - both plant and animal. Authored by some of the foremost scientists in the field, each volume provides up-to-date information and directions for future research. Articles in this volume address Plastid RNA polymerases, promoters, and transcription regulators in higher plants; Maintenance of Golgi Apparatus Structure in the Face of Continuous Protein Recycling to the ER: Making Ends Meet; Nucleocytoplasmic trafficking in plant cells; Building in vitro models of organs; Mitrochondria-drived organelles in protists and fungi; The flagellum of trypanosomes; and Regulation of growth and differentiation in Dictyostelium.

Editorial Reviews

Alvin Telser
This is Volume 185 in the series International Review of Cytology -- A Survey of Cell Biology. Several volumes in this series are published annually. The book contains thorough reviews of a wide range of current topics in cell biology. The topics in this volume are interesting and important areas in cell biology and each chapter meets a high standard of quality. These reviews would be useful for a graduate student wishing to learn about an area of research in cell biology. Senior researchers would also find the reviews informative and interesting. I feel they are well written and are very useful for a wide range of scientists. The contributors to each chapter are well recognized authorities in their individual fields. An important topic of current interest in cell biology is discussed in each of the six chapters. The book is well referenced and has a number of good quality illustrations. One of the positive features of reviews in this series is that the contributors often present a more personal interpretation of the subject. Consequently, this series serves as a useful forum for new or different views of conventional wisdom. This volume contains six well written, interesting discussions of current topics in cell biology. The major series that is comparable to this is the Annual Review of Cell Biology. It typically has more chapters and has a greater focus on identifying the majority of publications over a rather short time period in a specific area of research; each publication summarized in a few sentences. This series has a broader, and arguably more useful, style of presenting new and more individual interpretations of a research topic. Life science libraries should stockthese volumes in their collections.
From The Critics
Contains four contributions written by scientists in the fields of radiation and genome stability, anatomy, neurovirology, biochemistry and molecular biology, and agronomy research. The included pieces, drawn from the , address the effects of radiation damage on intestinal morphology; nonneuronal cellular prion protein; the cellular basis of shoot apical meristem development; and the roles of cytoskeletal and junctional plaque proteins in nuclear signaling. Includes a handful of b&w images, tables, and diagrams. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
The latest in the venerable series contains seven papers, on such topics as the intracellular actions of vitamin A, cerebellar lectins, and subcellular and molecular mechanisms of bile secretion. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Alvin Telser, PhD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This is volume 166 in an established, quality review series, International Review of Cytology/A Survey of Cell Biology. This volume has six excellent reviews on important areas of cell biology.
Purpose: This volume is edited by K. W. Jeon and contains no preface or introduction. Nevertheless, each review begins with a few introductory paragraphs that state the overall scope of the topic and its relevance and current importance to the field. Each of the reviews is well written, authoritative, comprehensive, and up-to-date.
Audience: Each of the six chapters is written for experts/researchers in the field. Beginners and novices may have some difficulty in appreciating the full content in each review. Each review is written by one or more top researchers in the respective field.
Features: The diagrams, figures, tables, and micrographs are well selected and reproduced. Each review is accompanied by copious and current references. The book is in a small format and is well produced and attractive.
Assessment: This is a excellent volume in this series that should be on the shelf of any biomedical library. Individuals with specific interests in two or more of the chapters would find it a useful addition to their personal library.
From the Publisher
"Invaluable reading for all biologists."

Meet the Author

Kwang Jeon received his Ph.D. in cell physiology at King’s College, University of London, UK, in 1964 and taught at SUNY Buffalo and University of Tennessee. His research was concerned with the biogenesis and function of cell components in two major areas: Integration of intracellular symbionts into host cells leading to the acquisition of new cell components and cell variation; Membrane-protein recycling during endo- and exocytosis.
