International Review of Cytology presents current advances and comprehensive reviews in cell biology--both plant and animal. Articles in this volume include the role and distribution of retinoic acid during CNS development, the role of receptor-associated protein (RAP) as a molecular chaperone for members of the LDL receptor family, the biology of cortical granules, acetylcholinesterase genes in the nematode caenorhabditis elegans, and reciprocal regulation of endothelin-1 and nitric oxide. Authored by some of the foremost scientists in the field, each volume provides up-to-date information and directions for future research.

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.
