The various cell types have traditionally been recognized and classified according to their appearance in the light microscope following the process of fixing, processing, sectioning, and staining tissues that is known as histology. Classical histology has been augmented by
immunohistochemistry (the use of specific antibodies to stain particular molecular species in situ). Immunohistochemistry has allowed the identification of many more cell types than could be visualized by classical histology, particularly in the immune system and among the scattered hormone-secreting cells of the endocrine system.

This book discusses all aspects of immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization technologies and the important role they play in reaching a cancer diagnosis. It provides step-by-step instructions on the methods of additional molecular technologies such as DNA microarrays, and microdissection, along with the benefits and limitations of each method. The topics of region-specific gene expression, its role in cancer development and the techniques that assist in the understanding of the molecular basis of disease are relevant and necessary in science today, ensuring a wide audience for this book.

This popular, hands-on guide has been thoroughly updated to cover the key techniques currently in use. These include in situ hybridization to mRNA with oligonucleotide and RNA probes (both radio labelled and hapten labelled); analysis with light and electron microscopes; whole mount in situ hybridization; double detection of RNAs and RNA plus protein; and fluorescent in situ hybridization to detect chromosomal sequences. The protocols are complemented by advice on strategies for successful results, descriptions of the theoretical basis for the methods, and important new developments in gene expression databases. Collecting reliable and well-tested techniques, this volume will prove an essential tool for a wide range of biomedical researchers.

In situ hybridization has become an important and widely used research tool for neurobiologists since the authors' first book on the subject, In Situ Hybridization: Applications to Neurobiology (Oxford, 1987). This new volume examines the methodological advances that have been made in in situ hybridization techniques and their impact on the study of the nervous system. These include methods for improving sensitivity, ways of examining multiple mRNAs within the same section, ways of examining both proteins and mRNAs within the same section, and methods for using in situ hybridization technology to examine areas of cellular biological significance, such as translational control. The development of alternative labels to radioactivity for the detection of hybridized probes, and the combined use of in situ hybridization and immunocytochemistry is also covered in this book. It discusses the quantification of in situ hybridization signal and presents an overview of information generated by using in situ hybridization in diagnostic medicine. This volume will be essential to researchers in the neurosciences as well as those in other disciplines.

In situ hybridization is a technique that allows for the visualization of specific DNA and RNA sequences in individual cells, and is an especially important method for studying nucleic acids in heterogeneous cell populations. in situ Hybridization in Electron Microscopy reviews the three main methods developed for the ultrastructural visualization of genes:
° hybridization on ultrathin sections of tissue embedded in hydrophilic resin (post-embedding method)
° hybridization prior to embedding (pre-embedding)
° hybridization on ultrathin sections of frozen tissue (frozen tissue method).
For each technique, the different stages are described in detail: the preparation of tissue, pretreatment, hybridization, and visualization of the hybridization products.

The book combines theory and practice, starting with the basic principles, then breaking down the experimental process into successive steps illustrated by numerous diagrams, detailed protocols, and tables. This is all done in a format that uses parallel columns to convey useful comments next to the theory and practical details alongside each stage of the protocol. Additionally, the summary tables provide the criteria for choosing the probe type and technique, and a detailed index aids in the search for information. in situ Hybridization In Electron Microscopy is an essential companion for applying these methods at the electron microscopic level.

The goal of this fascinating new book is to review the diversity of methods available to apply in situ hybridization histochemistry (ISHH) to a variety of experimental questions. This work includes topics such as synthesis and use of nick-translated DNA probes for ISHH, synthesis and use of oligomeric DNA probes for ISHH, and synthesis and use of RNA probes for ISHH. These interesting chapters describe the preparation of different radiolabeled probes for ISHH. They also discuss their respective advantages and limitations, and describe current results based on the use of these various probes. Sections of the text highlight low and high resolution autoradiography for ISHH, the use of biotin-labeled probes for ISHH, as well as the use of ISHH in combination with established anatomical techniques. In Situ Hybridization Histochemistry answers all of your questions regarding the quantification of ISHH. It also provides a practical description of typical protocols, both from molecular biology and histology. Investigators will understand and value this useful, powerful tool-whatever their backgrounds might be.

Immunocytochemistry and in situ hybridization are widely used biomedical sciences. They are essential in medical diagnosis and in cell biology research. Affinity labeling is the central goal of the experimental strategy involving a series of techniques in a logical order; from the effects of specimen fixation, through specimen preparation to expose the antigen, to optimizing immunolabeling, to assessing the result and finally to safety considerations. Numerous examples of these techniques in biomedical sciences are included, as well as experimental assays and practical tips. This survey of methods will serve as an invaluable reference source in any laboratory setting (academic, industrial or clinical) involved in research in almost every branch of biology or medicine, as well as in pharmaceutical, biotechnological and clinical applications.
