Overview

International Review of Cell and Molecular Biology by Kwang W. Jeon

International Review of Cell and Molecular Biology 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.

Contents include

Macromolecular Trafficking and Immune Evasion in African Trypanosomes

Biological and Biophysical Properties of Vascular Connexin Channels

Genotype-Phenotype Mapping: Developmental Biology Confronts the Toolkit Paradox

Role of Spindle Asymmetry in Cellular Dynamics

Cell Adhesion in Amphibian Gastrulation

Molecular and Cell Biology of Testicular Germ Cell Tumors

Polarity Proteins and Cell-Cell Interactions m the Testis

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.

Lorenzo Galluzzi (born 1980) is currently Assistant Professor of Cell Biology in Radiation Oncology at the Department of Radiation Oncology of the Weill Cornell Medical College (New York, USA), and Honorary Associate Professor at the Faculty of Medicine of the Paris Descartes University (Paris, France).
