International Review of Cytology presents current advances and comprehensive reviews in cell biology--both plant and animal. Articles in this volume address topics such as amphibians as models for the study of endocrine disruptors; the structure and function of the Entamoeba histoytica Gal/GalNAc lectin; epigenetic mechanisms for the primary differentiation in mammalian embryos; glycocalyx of lung epithelial cells; molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in the generation of fiber diversity during myogenesis; and the leukocyte cytoskeleton in cell migration and immune interactions. Authored by some of the foremost scientists in the field, each volume provides up-to-date information and directions for future research.
