Overview

International Review Of Cell and Molecular Biology

International Review of Cell and Molecular Biology presents current advances and comprehensive reviews in cell and molecular 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.

Contents include

Cell and Molecular Biology of Microtubule Plus End Tracking Proteins: End Binding Proteins and Their Partners

New Insights into the Roles of Molecular Chaperones in Chlamydomonas and Volvox

Unique Functions of Repetitive Transcriptomes

About 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.
