One of the series Molecular Biology Intelligence Unit, this book represents a comprehensive summary of recent advances in the study of the biogenesis and functional dynamics of the major organelles operating in the eukaryotic cell. This book begins by placing the study of organelle biogenesis in a historical perspective by describing past scientific strategies, theories, and findings and relating these foundations to current investigations. Reviews of protein and lipid mediators important for organelle biogenesis are then presented, and are followed by summaries focused on the endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi, lysosome, nucleus, mitochondria, and peroxisome.

All chapters are written by experts in their fields and, though concentrated on particular topics, are integrated under the general themes of organelle structure, function, dynamics, and biogenesis. An understanding of these concepts is important for all researchers and students interested in general cell biology and particularly to those with interests in organelle function.

It will be of value to research and hospital libraries, biomedical researchers, individuals working in biomedical, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical companies engaged in basic cellular, molecular, and biochemical and clinical research and teachers at the Graduate/Medical School level as well as scientists who purchase from companies that market cutting-edge cell biology products, such as antibodies and other reagents used in advanced microscopy techniques.
