Description

International Review of Cytology presents current advances and comprehensive reviews in cell biology--both plant and animal. Articles in this volume address such topics as cytoskeleton-dependent transport and localization of nRNA, special cytochemistry in cell biology, plasticity and stabilization of neuromuscular and CNS synapses, adipokinetic hormones of insects, and iron metabolism in mammalian cells. Authored by some of the foremost scientists in the field, each volume provides up-to-date information and directions for future research.

About Kwang W. Jeon

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.
