The technique of in situ hybridization, in its various forms, has been used routinely in many laboratories for a number of years. In the post-genome era, gene arrays and proteomics have allowed us to identify hitherto unknown unrecognized pathways and mechanisms. However, rather than diminish the importance of in situ hybridization, the now widespread use of screening te- nologies has increased the need to temporally and spatially localize the dist- bution of mRNA expression. Our intention, in In Situ Hybridization Protocols is to provide ample inf- mation for novices planning to set up the in situ hybridization technique and use it in their laboratory for the first time, as well as giving updates of recent developments for those laboratories where in situ hybridization techniques are already in use. Despite its widespread significance, in situ hybridization has retained a re- tation as one of the more difficult and capricious molecular biological te- niques. This may in part be because of the hybrid nature of the technique, which often requires a mixture of molecular biological and histological skills. The two techniques are usually taught and acquired in different streams of biolo- cal science. The step-by-step and detailed protocols provided in In Situ Hybridization Protocols by researchers active in the field should make it p- sible for both the molecular biologist with little experience of histology and the histologist with little experience of molecular biology to use the technique s- cessfully in their laboratories.
Fluorescence in situ Hybridization (FISH): Protocols and Applications (Methods in Molecular Biology)

sales rank: 2556796
Fluorescence in situ Hybridization (FISH) belongs to that special category of well-established molecular biology techniques that, since their inception a few decades ago, have succeeded in keeping a prominent position within the constantly expanding list of laboratory pro- dures for biomedical research and clinical diagnostics. The design simplicity and cost-effectiveness of the early FISH protocols, combined with the signifcant acceleration of discoveries in related technical areas such as fuor- cence microscopy, digital imaging, and nucleic acid technology have prompted the div- sifcation of the original technique into an outstanding number of imaginative and useful applications, and thus have not only held back its outmoding but have also promoted its expansion into different areas of basic and applied research in the post-genomic era. The 34 chapters included in this book aim at portraying the vibrant complexity and diversity of the current FISH protocol landscape, providing cutting-edge examples of va- ous applications for genetic and developmental research, cancer research, reproductive medicine, diagnostic and prognostic purposes, microbial ecology, and evolutionary st- ies. The book is divided in four parts: (I) Core Techniques, (II) Technical Advancements and Novel Adaptations, (III) Translational FISH: Applications for Human Genetics and Medicine, and (IV) Protocols for Model Organisms.

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.

In Situ Molecular Pathology and Co-Expression Analyses explains, in easy-to-understand language, simplified ways of understanding and performing in situ hybridization and immunohistochemistry tests. The book also focuses on straightforward protocols used to simultaneously detect two or more proteins/nucleic acids within intact tissue by doing co-expression analyses.
The fields of in situ hybridization and immunohistochemistry have expanded rapidly due to the use of computer-based analysis. To get the most out of these automated platforms, researchers and diagnostic biomedical investigators must have a solid understanding of the basics of in situ-based tests, protocols, and regimens for troubleshooting.
Practicing molecular pathologists, clinical chemists, and toxicologists, as well as clinicians and researchers in training, will benefit from this book's clear presentation of protocols and theoretical framework.

This book is a unique source of information on the present state of the exciting field of molecular cytogenetics and how it can be applied in research and diagnostics. The basic techniques of fluorescence in situ hybridization and primed in situ hybridization (PRINS) are outlined, the multiple approaches and probe sets that are now available for these techniques are described, and applications of them are presented in 36 chapters by authors from ten different countries around the world. The book not only provides the reader with basic and background knowledge on the topic, but also gives detailed protocols that show how molecular cytogenetics is currently performed by specialists in this field. The FISH Application Guide initially provides an overview of the (historical) development of molecular cytogenetics, its basic procedures, the equipment required, and probe generation. The book then describes tips and tricks for making different tissues available for molecular cytogenetic studies. These are followed by chapters on various multicolor FISH probe sets, their availability, and their pot- tial for use in combination with other approaches. The possible applications that are shown encompass the characterization of marker chromosomes, cryptic cytogenetic aberrations and epigenetic changes in humans by interphase and metaphase cyto- netics, studies of nuclear architecture, as well as the application of molecular cytogenetics to zoology, botany and microbiology.
