1989 (Volume 20, No. 3)Calcium Ions -- Cell Biology Special: Intracellular Calcium: Ubiquitous, Vital, DeadlyThe question of what makes a muscle twitch rapidly became an examination of the intimate relationship between calcium and an imposing array of vital cell functions. The cell's challenge to manage calcium may begin as a matter of cellular life and death. Coming to terms with a killer. Calcium's myriad roles. To track a swift ion. David ZimmermanPDF
1989 (Volume 20, No. 3)Endocytobiology -- Cell Biology Special: The Wheels within WheelsIn the Superkingdom Eucaryotae After decades of uphill struggle and rejection, the serial endosymbiosis theory, which proclaims the origin in symbiosis of organelle-inhabited, nucleated cells, has entered cell biology's mainstream. The place of the undulipodia has still to be fixed. How many kingdoms? Arthur FisherPDF
1989 (Volume 20, No. 3)Ion Channels -- Cell Biology Special: Gateways to the Extracellular WorldThe question of what makes a muscle twitch rapidly became an examination of the intimate relationship between calcium and an imposing array of vital cell functions. The cell's challenge to manage calcium may begin as a matter of cellular life and death. Coming to terms with a killer. Calcium's myriad roles. To track a swift ion.Edward EdelsonPDF
1989 (Volume 20, No. 3)Organelle Transport -- Cell Biology Special: The Engines Within CellsVesicles and other subcellular organelles course constantly along the cytosceletal microtubules that crisscross a cell's interior. The engines that drive them, like the fuel that powers them, are turning out to be the same throughout the animal kingdom.Mort LaBrecquePDF
1989 (Volume 20, No. 3)Signal Transduction -- Cell Biology Special: Cellular Links to the Outside WorldThe pathways and messengers through which information enters a cell and influences its performance are yielding their secrets. Several have been described in detail. Complexity may yield to simplicity as more becomes known.Edward EdelsonPDF
