In Situ Hybridization Histochemistry
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.
