Single Molecule Biology by Alexander E. Knight

By Alexander E. Knight

Single molecule suggestions, together with unmarried molecule fluorescence, optical tweezers, and scanning probe microscopy, let for the manipulation and size of unmarried organic molecules inside of a reside mobilephone or in tradition. those techniques, among the main fascinating instruments on hand in biology at the present time, provide robust new how you can elucidate organic functionality, either by way of revealing mechanisms of motion on a molecular point in addition to monitoring the behaviour of molecules in dwelling cells. This ebook offers the 1st entire and authoritative remedy of this speedily rising box, explicitly from a organic perspective.

The contents are geared up by means of organic procedure or molecule. every one bankruptcy discusses insights which were printed approximately their mechanism, constitution or functionality by way of unmarried molecule strategies. one of the issues coated are enzymes, motor proteins, membrane channels, DNA, ribozymes, cytoskeletal proteins, and different key molecules of present curiosity. An creation through the editor offers a concise evaluation of key ideas and an ancient evaluate. The final part discusses functions in molecular diagnostics and drug discovery.
