Cell Lineage and Embryo Patterning

Copertina anteriore
Elsevier, 13 dic 2000 - 623 pagine
International Review of Cytology presents current advances and comprehensive reviews in cell biology, both plant and animal. Articles address structure and control of gene expression, nucleocytoplasmic interactions, control of cell development and differentiation, and cell transformation and growth. Authored by some of the foremost scientists in the field, each volume provides up-to-date information and directions for future research.
This volume brings together current information on the localization and roles of RNAs in cell-lineage determination and subsequent patterning in embryonic development. Guest co-editor Lawrence Etkin is one of the leading researchers in molecular genetics of Xenopus.

Key Features
* A number of important concepts are discussed, including:
* How polarity is established during oogenesis
* How germ cell determinants become organized in the establishment of the germ cell lineage
* Different strategies used by organisms to establish the germ cell lineage
* Similarities and differences between the mechanisms used in embryonic patterning
* The mechanisms and machinery by which molecules such as RNA become asymmetrically segregated
* The use of similar signaling pathways in patterning of the dorsal-ventral and right-left asymmetries, embryonic germ layers, limb, and nervous system
* The link between fundamental biological processes such as RNA translation and localization in the regulation of axis specification

Informazioni sull'autore (2000)

Kwang Jeon received his Ph.D. in cell physiology at King’s College, University of London, UK, in 1964 and taught at SUNY Buffalo and University of Tennessee. His research was concerned with the biogenesis and function of cell components in two major areas: Integration of intracellular symbionts into host cells leading to the acquisition of new cell components and cell variation; Membrane-protein recycling during endo- and exocytosis.
