Cell Surfaces in the Control of Growth and Morphogenesis
My students and I have been concerned, over the years, with the role of cell surfaces in multicellular assembly phenomena. It pleases me greatly that two of them (Dr. Gary Gorbsky and Dr. William A. Thomas) are among the contrib utors to this volume. This chapter concentrates on two areas in which cell surface phenomena play a central controlling role—the control of cell proliferation and the control of multicellular assembly.
