Description

The Ultrastructure of the Animal Cell focuses on the ultrastructure of the animal cell, with emphasis on cell chemistry, biochemistry, and physiology. Discussions are organized around the interphase cell and cell division and cover topics ranging from the general structure and molecular models of cell membranes to the ultrastructure of the nucleus and the cytosome. Changes in cell ultrastructure during embryogenesis, differentiation, and secretion are also examined. This monograph is comprised of nine chapters and begins with an introduction to the principles and techniques of electron microscopy. The next section is devoted to the interphase cell and first presents an overview of the animal cell before considering the ultrastructure of the nucleus and the cytosome, with particular reference to the plasma membrane and associated structures; the hyaloplasm; endoplasmic reticulum; the Golgi complex; and mitochondria. The changes that take place in the ultrastructure of the cell during embryogenesis, differentiation, and secretion are also analyzed. The last section deals with cell division and the ultrastructure of the dividing cell. This text will be a useful resource for cell biologists, biochemists, and physiologists, as well as students and teachers of biology, biochemistry, and physiology.
