The Nuclear Membrane and Nucleocytoplasmic Interchange

  • Alfred E. Mirsky
Part of the Protoplasmatologia book series (PROTOPLASMATOL., volume 5 / 2)


The essays in this little volume give the reader a good idea of what is now known about the structure of the nuclear membrane and of how materials pass through it. These essays form a coherent whole, although no attempt has been made to fit them together smoothly. As for other problems of cell biology, investigation of the nuclear membrane is prospering because many different experimental procedures are being used. The contributions to this volume are an example of how well the different approaches complement each other.
