This volume details histochemical techniques for the detection of specific molecules or metabolic processes, both at light and electron microscopy. Chapters are divided into seven sections covering Vital histochemistry, Carbohydrate histochemistry, Protein histochemistry, Lipid histochemistry, Nuclear histochemistry, Plant histochemistry and Histochemistry for Nanoscience. Written in the successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible protocols, and notes on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. The volume also contains three discursive chapters on Histochemistry in advanced cytometry, Lectins and Detection of molecules in plant cell walls by fluorescence microscopy.
Authoritative and cutting-edge, Histochemistry of Single Molecules: Methods and Protocols, Second Edition aims to be a useful practical guide for researchers to help further their study in this field.
