DNA Damage Detection In Situ, Ex Vivo, and In Vivo: Methods and Protocols / Edition 1

Recent advances in organic chemistry, fluorescent microscopy, and materials science have created an entirely new range of techniques and probes for imaging DNA damage in molecular and cellular biology. In DNA Damage Detection In Situ, Ex Vivo, and In Vivo: Methods and Protocols, expert researchers explore the latest advances in the area, covering both recent and established techniques to detect and quantify DNA damage at scales ranging from subcellular to the level of a whole live organism. Chapters present all major assays used in molecular and cellular biology for the labeling of DNA damage in situ, ex vivo, and in vivo. Composed in the highly successful Methods in Molecular BiologyT series format, each chapter contains a brief introduction, step-by-step methods, a list of necessary materials, and a Notes section which shares tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Comprehensive and current, DNA Damage Detection In Situ, Ex Vivo, and In Vivo: Methods and Protocols is an essential handbook for novice and experienced researchers in a variety of fields, including molecular and cellular biology, experimental and clinical pathology, toxicology, radiobiology, oncology, embryology, experimental pharmacology, drug design, and environmental science.
