International Review of Cytology presents current advances and comprehensive reviews in cell biology - both plant and animal. Authored by some of the foremost scientists in the field, each volume provides up-to-date information and directions for future research. Articles in this volume include Function and Evolution of the Vacuolar Compartment in Green Algae and Land Plants
(Viridiplantae); Cell biology and pathophysiology of diacylglycerol kinase family: morphological aspects in tissues and organs; Structure and function of desmosomes; Subepithelial Fibroblasts in Intestinal Villi: Roles in Intercellular Communication; and Syndrome of Aluminum Toxicity and Diversity of Aluminum Resistance in Higher Plants.
