On the cover: Bone marrow stromal cell monolayers were treated with a prototypic aryl hydrocarbon receptor agonist, 7,12-dimethylbenz[a] anthracene (DMBA). Monolayers were washed, and cloned bone marrow pro/preB cells were centrifuged onto the monolayer. Fluorescent DMBA metabolites from stromal cells (pink) can be seen accumulating in adjacent B cells (blue), likely through membrane transfer. Teague, J. E., H-Y. Ryu,M. Kirber, D.H. Sherr, and J. J.
