International Review of Cytology 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. This volume contains the following articles: Interpretations of Mutants in Leaf Morphology; Regulation of Nuclear Import and Export by the GTPase RAN; The Role of Growth Factors in Tooth Development; Actin Dynamics in Platelets; Photoreceptor Renewal; and Specification of Developmental Fates in Ascidian Embryos.
Interpretation of Mutants in Leaf Morphology: Genetic Evidence for a Compensatory System in Leaf Morphogenesis Regulation of Nuclear Import and Export by the GTPase Ran The Role of Growth Factors in Tooth Development Actin Dynamics in Platelets Photoreceptor Renewal:A Role for Perepherin/rds Specification of Developmental Fates in Ascidian Embryos: Maternal Determinants and Signaling Molecules
Cell biologists, molecular biologists, developmental biologists, physiologists (organ level), biomedical scientists, and biochemists studying cell-cell interactions, cell variation, and evolution.

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.
