The Biogenesis of Cellular Organelles


  • All chapters in The Biogenesis of Cellular Organelles 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.

About this book


The Biogenesis of Cellular Organelles 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.
