International Review of Cytology presents current advances and comprehensive reviews in cell biology – both plant and animal. Authored by some of the foremost scientists in the field, each volume provides up-to-date information and directions for future research. Articles in this volume include Adhesion Molecules and Other Secreted Host-interaction Determinants in Apicomplexa: Insights from Comparative Genomics; Cell Responses to Biomimetic Protein Scaffold Used in Tissue Repair and Engineering; New Insights into Glycosphingolipid Function – Storage, Lipid Rafts and Translocators; Microscopic Morphology and the Origins of the Membrane Maturation Model of Golgi Apparatus Function; New Insights into the Macronuclear Development in Cilliates; Polarity Regulators and the Control of Epithelial Architecture, Cell Migration and Tumourigenesis.


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

About the editor

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.
