    Aims and Scope


    Histochemistry and Cell Biology is a journal devoted specifically to the field of molecular histology and cell biology. Original Articles and Short Communications dealing with the localization and identification of molecular components, metabolic activities and cell biological aspects of cells and tissues will be published as well as Review Articles. Papers are also welcome that make a substantial contribution to the development, application, and/or evaluation of methods and probes that can be used in the entire area of histochemistry and cell biology. Preference will be given to studies involving experimental approaches and/or a variety of different methods that help to characterize and quantify molecular constituents, dynamic properties and functional aspects of cellular and extracellular structures.
