"...Dalbey et al. have summed up what has happened so far in a rapidly moving field of modern cellular biochemistry."

"Overall this book provides good summaries of what we know about how proteins are moved between intracellular compartments and how we have studied this problem. Students or anyone wanting to know more about protein trafficking, particularly protein translocation across membranes, will find it a useful guide." --CELL, 2002
