Protein Synthesis and Secretion

  • A. V. LeBouton


From a biochemical viewpoint, protein synthesis has probably been investigated more intensively in the liver than in any other organ. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for studies at the tissue level within the simple liver acinus (see Chapter 1 for anatomical considerations).
