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.


Cell biologists, molecular biologists, developmental biologists, physiologists (organ level), biomedical scientists, biochemists studying cell-cell interactions, cell variation, and evolution.
