Description:Containing over 150 original photomicrographs accompanied by protocol information, Atlas of Cell Organelles Fluorescence delineates organelles' structures, interaction, and organization into complexes. It provides a collection that shows living cells under physiopathological conditions and in the context of treatment with carcinogens, xenobiotics, and chemotherapeutic drugs as well as photosensitizers. A guide for therapeutic, diagnostic, or prognostic interpretation of images, and for further research, the atlas helps you identify critical points of attack and suggests possible strategies for investigation.Each section provides a brief introduction and the technical details of the staining methods used. The text identifies the organelles and gives explanations of unusual appearances and the cytochemical reactions when necessary. Additional text is provided where appropriate for extension and implementation of methods being utilized to generate similar results. In all cases the normal and pathological markers and content are presented. The atlas includes a color insert that illustrates characteristic organelle features, microcompartmentalization, and alterations as investigated by one or more probes simultaneously.The book, an exhaustive list of cellular events observed using microfluorometry, supplies a compilation of information spread throughout the literature of the last 30 years. Atlas of Cell Organelles Fluorescence brings the information together and puts it in an easily accessible format.
