Protein Turnover and Lysosome Function comprises the proceedings of a symposium under the same title held at the State University of New York at Buffalo on August 21-26, 1977. The book discusses mechanisms of protein turnover, as well as the identification and characterization of intracellular proteases. The text also describes the internalization of macromolecules into the intracellular digestive system; the types of specificity entailed; and the fate of the membrane material involved in the vacuolization process. Biochemists, pathologists, cell biologists, molecular biologists, and physiologists will find the book invaluable.
