Developmental Biology, Supplement 1: Control Mechanisms in Developmental Processes focuses on the process of how organs grow and develop. This book is organized into three main topics—role of cytoplasmic units, role of the nucleus, and regulatory mechanisms. This compilation specifically discusses the control mechanisms in plastid development, nuclear control of morphology, and possible involvement of mitochondrial DNA. The mode of operation of a regulatory system in maize, hooded gene in barley, and regulation of the cell cycle in mammalian cells are also described. This text likewise considers the development of immunocompetent cells, regulatory action of estrogenic hormones, and biological activity of uterine RNA. This publication is suitable for biologists, specialists, and students concerned with developmental processes.
