Overview

Lorette Javois' timely new 2nd edition revises and updates her widely acclaimed collection of step-by-step immunocyhemical methods, one that is now used in many biological and biomedical research programs. The methods are designed for researchers and clinicians who wish to visualize molecules in plant or animal embryos, tissue sections, cells, or organelles. In addition to cutting-edge prools for purifying and preparing antibodies, light microscopic analysis, confocal microscopy, FACS, and electron microscopy, this revised edition contains many new methods for applying immunocyhemical techniques in the clinical laboratory and in combination with in situ hybridization.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Immunocytochemical Methods and Protocols offers a powerful collection of step-by-step immunocytochemical methods that can be used in many biological and biomedical disciplines in both research and clinical settings. Each protocol includes troubleshooting tips and alternative procedures, as well as informative explanations of why certain steps are necessary, and comprehensive lists of reagents and suppliers aids not usually found in standard journal recipes. Among the especially valuable protocols presented are those geared to preparing antibodies for staining procedures, light microscopic analysis, FACS, electron microscopy, and confocal microscopy. There are also protocols for nucleic acid immunocytochemistry, electron microscopic evaluation of antibody labeling using colloidal gold, and the use of antibodies for the differential diagnosis of tumors. Special applications arising from recent improvements in equipment design and technology among them laser microbeam workstations and automated immunostainers are also thoroughly presented.

Editorial Reviews

Richard D. Minshall
This second edition provides detailed protocols for immunocytochemical localization of tissue constituents. The book is well balanced and suited for basic and clinical research scientists. Antibody preparation and purification, tissue and cell fixation, and fluorescent- and enzyme-conjugated antibody detection by light, confocal, and electron microscopy, as well as FACS analysis and in situ hybridization, are all covered. Examples of several protocols are given, providing the novice and expert researcher in any field of biology or medicine detailed protocols and solutions to pitfalls to ensure successful antigen localization and tissue morphology assessment. The purpose is to provide detailed protocols and guidance for conducting an immunocytochemical examination of tissue and cell constituents. This book provides a means of doing a "first" experiment with some assurance of success. The protocols are detailed enough to follow for the novice experimentalist, yet informative enough for the experienced investigator to adapt a new technique to his/her specific research questions. Research scientists, technicians, and students who study or wish to localize tissue constituent, usually a protein, in the context of the whole cell or organ are the intended audiences for this book. The editor has successfully compiled this book for the intended readers. The editor and contributors are credible. The book contains protocols for antibody purification and conjugation to detection systems, tissue preparation and fixation for light, fluorescence, confocal, and electron microscopy, as well as FACS analysis and in situ hybridization. The protocol style format is useful for a first experiment. Theillustrations are attractive and informative. The book as a whole is nicely done. I find this a very useful and practical addition to all fields of biology and medicine. It is very user friendly and should be a great reference for those designing experiments and writing.
