Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Invaluable reading for all biologists."
"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."
"A valuable addition to any college library as current reference material for advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and professional scientists."
"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."
"Should be on the shelf of any biomedical library."
—Alvin Tesler, Northwestern Medical School, in DOODY'S

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
Reviewer: Alvin Telser, PhD(Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This is Volume 198 in the series, "International Review of Cell Biology—A Survey of Cell Biology." It consists of seven reviews of subjects of interest to cell and developmental biologists.
Purpose: The purpose of this series is to provide high quality reviews of timely topics in cell and developmental biology. These are worthy objectives and are met admirably.
Audience: The reviews are suitable for a beginning undergraduate or graduate student as well as an experienced research scientist. Each chapter would contribute to the knowledge and understanding of the specific topic under discussion and review no matter who the reader is. The chapter contributors are well known in their respective fields.
Features: These reviews typically cover a wide spectrum of plant and animal biology - from single-celled forms to higher organisms. In this volume contributors discuss the early development of somites in vertebrates in one chapter and the development of the eggshell in Drosophila in another. There are also chapters on the movement of fluids across epithelia, the movement and targeting of membrane-bound organelles in animal cells, and a final chapter on survival mechanisms in plant cells. The book has no special features; it has many current references in each chapter and high quality illustrations.
Assessment: This is an excellent contribution to this distinguished series. This series is long recognized as one of the best in the field. The chapters are well written and the topics will be ofinterest to scientists in many fields. It should be in the collection of any life science library.
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 (

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.
