Description:Ray H. Gavin brings together an international panel of experienced researchers to detail the readily reproducible methods that utilize biochemistry, immunology, genetics, microscopy, and image analysis for investigating cytoskeleton structure and function. Each protocol contains proven step-by-step instructions that enable both the novice and the experienced researcher to achieve successful experimental results. The protocols utilize diverse model systems in a variety of organisms, including Saccharomyces, Micrasterias, Tetrahymena, Drosophila, Spisula, and Xenopus. Microscopy applications include digital-video microscopy and computer-assisted systems for the evaluation of cell motility and morphology. State-of-the-art and highly practical, Cytoskeleton Methods and Protocols makes available a diverse collection of powerful experimental systems and tools for successfully studying cytoskeleton structure and function.
