Sorting and Recycling Endosomes by Wei (Carolyn Lynch Laboratories, University of Pennsylvania, USA) Guo


Sorting and Recycling Endosomes by Wei (Carolyn Lynch Laboratories, University of Pennsylvania, USA) Guo

Sorting and Recycling Endosomes provides the latest information on endosomes, the receiving compartment for endocytosed cargos, and the donor compartment and sorting station for cargos designated to lysosomes, Golgi, or plasma membrane. In recent years, the importance of endosomes as a sorting and recycling compartment has become increasingly appreciated. As such, scientists from various fields of cell biology, membrane traffic, and beyond, see the needs to communicate and learn about the methods used to investigate the dynamics and functions of endosomes. This book brings together specialists from the field who contribute their expertise on a broad range of biomedical topics that will provide ideal reading for researchers interested in endosomal sorting and recycling. This volume covers the approaches necessary to study the key components that mediate the generation and transport of membrane-bounded carriers from the endosomes, and how membrane trafficking machinery is coordinated with cytoskeletons during these processes. In addition to studies carried out in mammalian cells, other model systems such as worm and yeast are also included.


Praise for the Series:

The series is invaluable for workers at all levels of cell biology. --Nature

About the Author

Professor Wei Guo is an internationally recognized expert in the study of membrane trafficking. His research focuses on the key players and regulators that control the trafficking from the trans-Golgi network and recycling endosomes to the plasma membrane. He has published many important papers that are highly cited in various fields of cell biology. Dr. Guo has also served on many grant review committees including the National Institute of Health study sections. He was awarded, among others, the Pew Biomedical Scholarship and is currently on the editorial boards of Molecular Biology of the Cell and Cytoskeleton.
