General description

This 2nd edition revises and updates the previous collection of step-by-step immunocytochemical methods now used in many biological and biomedical research programs. The methods are designed for researchers and clinicians that wish to visualize molecules in plant or animal embryos, tissue sections, cells, or organelles. In addition to cutting-edge protocols for purifying and preparing antibodies, light microscopic analysis, confocal microscopy, FACS, and electron microscopy are also covered.
