Fluorescence Applications in Biotechnology and the Life Sciences Edited by Ewa M. Goldys A self-contained treatment of the latest fluorescence applications in biotechnology and the life sciences Fluorescence Applications in Biotechnology and the Life Sciences is the first reference in this important subject area to focus specifically on the present applications of fluorescence in molecular and cellular dynamics, biological/medical imaging, proteomics, genomics, and flow cytometry. It is designed to raise awareness of the latest scientific approaches and technologies that may help resolve problems relevant for the industry and the community in areas such as public health, food safety, and environ-mental monitoring. Following an introductory chapter on the basics of fluorescence, the book covers: labeling of cells with fluorescent dyes; genetically encoded fluorescent proteins; nanoparticle fluorescence probes; quantitative analysis of fluorescent images; spectral imaging and unmixing; correlation of light with electron microscopy; fluorescence resonance energy transfer and applications; monitoring molecular dynamics in live cells using fluorescence photo-bleaching; time-resolved fluorescence in microscopy; fluorescence correlation spectroscopy; flow cytometry; fluorescence in diagnostic imaging; fluorescence in clinical diagnoses; immunochemical detection of analytes by using fluorescence; membrane organization; and probing the kinetics of ion pumps via voltage-sensitive fluorescent dyes. With its multidisciplinary approach and excellent balance of research and diagnostic topics, this book will appeal to postgraduate students and a broad range of scientists and researchers in biology, physics, chemistry, biotechnology, bioengineering, and medicine.

As applied life science progresses, becoming fully integrated into the biological, chemical, and engineering sciences, there is a growing need for expanding life sciences research techniques. Anticipating the demands of various life science disciplines, Laboratory Protocols in Applied Life Sciences explores this development. This book covers a wide spectrum of areas in the interdisciplinary fields of life sciences, pharmacy, medical and paramedical sciences, and biotechnology. It examines the principles, concepts, and every aspect of applicable techniques in these areas. Covering elementary concepts to advanced research techniques, the text analyzes data through experimentation and explains the theory behind each exercise. It presents each experiment with an introduction to the topic, concise objectives, and a list of necessary materials and reagents, and introduces step-by-step, readily feasible laboratory protocols. Focusing on the chemical characteristics of enzymes, metabolic processes, product and raw materials, and on the basic mechanisms and analytical techniques involved in life science technological transformations, this text provides information on the biological characteristics of living cells of different origin and the development of new life forms by genetic engineering techniques. It also examines product development using biological systems, including pharmaceutical, food, and beverage industries. Laboratory Protocols in Applied Life Sciences presents a nonmathematical account of the underlying principles of a variety of experimental techniques in disciplines, including: Biotechnology Analytical biochemistry Clinical biochemistry Biophysics Molecular biology Genetic engineering Bioprocess technology Industrial processes Animal Plant Microbial biology Computational biology Biosensors Each chapter is self-contained and written in a style that helps students progress from basic to advanced techniques, and eventually design and execute their own experiments in a given field of biology.

Yanagida (Osaka University Graduate School of Frontier Biosciences) and Ishii (Core Research for Evolutional Science and Technology, Japan Science and Technology Agency) gather pioneers in the field of single molecule science to show how to set up and interpret a single molecule experiment. Following an introduction to single molecule measurements and enzymology, contributors consider molecular motors and mechanical properties, then move on to applications. Detailed discussions of studies on protein enzymes, ribozymes, and nucleic acids are also included. Some chapter topics include imaging and molecular motors, signal transduction across the plasma membrane, single-molecule tracking of quantum dot liganded epidermal growth factor, single- molecule FRET studies of helicases and Holliday junctions, and high- speed atomic force microscopy for nano-visualization of biomolecular processes. B&w and color images and illustrations are included. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR --From booknews.com.

This volume provides an overview of the development and scope of molecular biophysics and in-depth discussions of the major experimental methods that enable biological macromolecules to be studied at atomic resolution. It also reviews the physical chemical concepts that are needed to interpret the experimental results and to understand how the structure, dynamics, and physical properties of biological macromolecules enable them to perform their biological functions. Reviews of research on three disparate biomolecular machines—DNA helicases, ATP synthases, and myosin--illustrate how the combination of theory and experiment leads to new insights and new questions.
