The Structure and Function of Animal Cell Components: An Introductory Text provides an introduction to the study of animal cells, specifically the structure and function of the cells. To help readers appreciate the discussions, this book first provides an introduction to the physiological and biochemical function of animal cells, which is followed by an introduction to animal cell structure. This text then presents topics on the components of the cells, such as the mitochondria and the nucleus, and processes in the cells, including protein synthesis. This selection will be invaluable to cytologists, anatomists, and pathologists, as well as to readers who have an elementary knowledge of both biochemistry and cytology.
