Fundamentals of Fluorescence Imaging

1st Edition

Guy Cox
April 09, 2019

Fluorescence imaging, at macro, micro, and submicro scales, has revolutionized biological science in the past 30 years. Immunolabelling has provided precise targeting of molecules in fixed tissue, while fluorescent proteins have enabled localization in living tissues. Fluorescent indicators enable...

The Charnoly Body: A Novel Biomarker of Mitochondrial Bioenergetics

1st Edition

Sushil Sharma
February 06, 2019

Diversified physicochemical injuries trigger Charnoly body (CB) formation as pleomorphic, electron-dense, multi-lamellar stacks of nonfunctional mitochondrial membranes in the most vulnerable cell. Free radicals induce downregulation of mitochondrial DNA, microRNA, AgNOR, and epigenetics to trigger...

Invitation to Protein Sequence Analysis Through Probability and Information

1st Edition

Daniel J. Graham
February 04, 2019

This book explores the remarkable information correspondences and probability structures of proteins. Correspondences are pervasive in biochemistry and bioinformatics: proteins share homologies, folding patterns, and mechanisms. Probability structures are just as paramount: folded state graphics...
