Division of Labor in Cells, Second Edition focuses on cytological techniques used in studies related to the complexities of cell structure and function.
The publication first elaborates on the structure of cell membrane and cytoplasm, including the endoplasmic reticulum, nature of microsomes, differential centrifugation, and permeability of cell membranes. The book then takes a look at the mitochondria and Golgi apparatus. Topics include metabolic substances found in the mitochondria, plant cells, protein and fat metabolism, lysosomes, metabolism of carbohydrates, plastids and chloroplasts, and chemical nature of the mitochondria.
The manuscript elaborates on gland cells, muscle fibers, and nerve fibers and the nucleus and nucleic acids. Discussions focus on the striated muscle fiber, nucleocytoplasmic relationships, nucleic acids of the nucleus, DNA, RNA, and genes, chromosomes, and spindle fibers.
The publication is a vital reference for researchers interested in cell structure and function.
