Sourcebook of models for biomedical research by P. Michael Conn( )

14 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The collection of systems represented in the Sourcebook of Models for Biomedical Research reflect the diversity and utility of models that are used in biomedicine. That utility is based on the consideration that observations made in particular organisms will provide insight into the workings of other, more complex systems. Some models have the advantage that the reproductive, mitotic, development or aging cycles are rapid compared with those in humans; others are utilized because individual proteins may be studied in an advantageous way and have human homologs. Other organisms are facile to grow in laboratory settings, lend themselves to convenient analyses, have defined genomes or present especially good human models of human or animal disease. The Sourcebook of Models for Biomedical Research is a comprehensive and extensive collection of these important medical parallels. While the entire book is not devoted to the remarkable success of the genomic programs, this work is well represented and indexed within these pages. - Publisher

Green fluorescent protein( Book )

10 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most important recent discoveries in science is the green fluorescent protein, isolated from a bioluminescent jellyfish. The gene that codes for this protein is active in any type of cell, from microbes to humans, producing a "day-glo" dye visible as a bright green light in the microscope. The power of the gene is that by using recombinant DNA technology. GFP can be spliced to any protein, essentially painting that protein green. When such a spliced protein is inside a cell. Further, time-lapse microscopy can be used to examine how that protein and the cellular components that it is part of move within the cell during the cell's life cycle. This Methods in Enzymology volume deals with the utility of green fluorescent protein (GFP). The OVID database (including MEDLINE, Current Contents, and other sources) lists nine references to GFP for the ten-year period 1985-1994. In contrast, in less than four years thereafter, over 500 references are listed, a testament to the rapid growth of interest in this probe. This volume documents many diverse uses for this interesting molecule in disciplines that broadly span biology. The methods presented include shortcuts and conveniences not included in previously published sources. The techniques are described in a context that allows comparisons to other related methodologies-such comparisons are valuable to readers who must adapt existing procedures to new systems. Also, so far as possible, methodologies have been presented in a manner that stresses their general applicability and potential limitations. The volume provides a substantial and current overview of the extant methodology in the field and a view of its rapid development. The critically acclaimed laboratory standard for more than forty years, Methods in Enzymology is one of the most highly respected publications in the field of biochemistry. Since 1955, each volume has been eagerly awaited, frequently consulted, and praised by researchers and reviewers alike. Now with more than 300 volumes (all of them still in print), the series contains much material still relevant today--truly an essential publication for researchers in all fields of life sciences. Key Features * Monitoring of Physiological Processes * Localization of Molecules * Special Uses * Mutants * Variants of GFP

Handbook of proteomic methods by P. Michael Conn( Book )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The developing new field of proteomics holds significant promise for a deeper understanding of complicated biological systems, as well as for novel approaches to the cure of disease. In the Handbook of Proteomic Methods, P. Michael Conn has assembled a panel of well-recognized experts to describe a wide range of powerful techniques for identifying and analyzing the diversity of proteins expressed in cells. These readily reproducible proteomic methods range from general to specific techniques, and include methods for data analysis, post-translational modification, and its variants and isoforms. Additional methods demonstrate the application of proteomics to the discovery of serological tumor markers, to identifying the determinants of sensitivity to antitumor drugs, and to specialized fields, such as endocrinology, plant biology, nephrology, and urology. Each fully tested protocol is described in step-by-step detail, complete with tricks of the trade and hints on avoiding pitfalls. The detail of description exceeds that usually found in primary publications. Wide-ranging and practical, the Handbook of Proteomic Methods offers scientists entering, or already active in, the field a fully referenced compendium of easy-to-use proteomic methods-each reflecting the power and promise of proteomics in illuminating complex biological systems and in promoting the development of novel drugs for the amelioration of disease
