9780121822033: Green Fluorescent Protein: 302 (Methods in Enzymology)

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 include: Monitoring of Physiological Processes; Localization of Molecules; Special Uses; Mutants; and Variants of GFP.

Review:

"A series that has established itself as a definitive reference for biochemists." -- JOURNAL OF CHROMATOGRAPHY

"Incomparably useful." -- ANALYTICAL BIOCHEMISTRY

"It is a true 'methods' series, including almost every detail from basic theory to sources of equipment and reagents, with timely documentation provided on each page." -- BIO/TECHNOLOGY

"The Methods in Enzymology series represents the gold-standard." -- NEUROSCIENCE

"The appearance of another volume in that excellent series, Methods in Enzymology, is always a cause for appreciation for those who wish to successfully carry out a particular technique or prepare an enzyme or metabolic intermediate without the tiresome prospect of searching through unfamiliar literature and perhaps selecting an unproven method which is not easily reproduced." -- AMERICAN SOCIETY OF MICROBIOLOGY NEWS

"The series has been following the growing, changing and creation of new areas of science. It should be on the shelves of all libraries in the world as a whole collection." -- CHEMISTRY IN INDUSTRY

About the Author:

Alan P. Wolffe is Chief of the Laboratory of Molecular Embryology and of the Section on Molecular Biology at the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. He was educated in the UK, studying biochemistry at Oxford and completing graduate research with the Medical Research Council in London before moving to the United States. After a post-doctoral fellowship funded by the European Molecular Biology Organization at the Carnegie Institution of Washington, Dr. Wolffe joined the National Institutes of Health in 1988. His research interests include the earliest events in vertebrate development, with respect to the mechanisms through which nucleic acid binding proteins influence gene expression.
