Cell polarity is critical for diverse biological processes including development of a multicellular organism from a zygote, transmission of nerve impulses, transport of molecules across cell layers and specification of cell fate. The process of cell polarity development has been studied in numerous cell types using a wide variety of experimental approaches. This volume is comprehensive in nature, current in the contents, and written by leading scholars in their fields. It succeeds in producing a synthesis of information collected by cell biological, genetic, biochemical and physiological approaches. These approaches have been applied to studies of bacteria, yeast, plants and animal cells, enabling the identification of general themes. Cell Polarity: Frontiers in Molecular Biology will prove useful for students getting their first exposure to the topic as well as researchers actively studying aspects of cell polarity.
