Praise for the Series
"Invaluable reading for all biologists." --NATURE

"In keeping with the high standards set by the editors... carefully prepared and edited in the customary fine format and well-illustrated style of Academic Press publications... this series is a significant contribution to a science that impinges on many fields." --THE QUARTERLY REVIEW OF BIOLOGY

"A valuable addition to any college library as current reference material for advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and professional scientists." --CHOICE

"Maintains the tradition and set-up of the previous volumes and certainly provides up-to-date data on varied aspects of cytology... a valuable acquisition to any library." --THE NUCLEUS

"Should be on the shelf of any biomedical library." --Alvin Tesler, Northwestern Medical School, in DOODY'S

About the Serial Editor

Kwang Jeon

Kwang 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.
