Description

Expert laboratorians update the classic bioconjugation methods and introduce valuable new techniques that go beyond pure biomedical applications to include elements from advanced organic synthesis, molecular biology, and materials science. These readily reproducible methods cover the preparation of protein conjugates using covalent and noncovalent conjugation, the synthesis of nucleic acid conjugates using a variety of labeling techniques, and approaches to semisynthetic conjugates of proteins. Additional chapters address the biofunctionalization of inorganic surfaces, including the on-chip synthesis of peptide nucleic acids to generate microarrays for the high-throughput analysis of RNA and DNA, gold nanaoparticles, and carbon nanotube probes for atomic force microscopy.show more

Back cover copy

Contemporary approaches to the synthesis of chemically modified proteins not only require efficient means to control conjugation and the specific site of attachment of the conjugated moiety, but also the effective use of recent developments in microarray technologies and nanobiotechnology. In Bioconjugation Protocols: Strategies and Methods, expert laboratorians update the classic methods and introduce valuable new approaches that go beyond basic conjugation techniques to include elements from advanced organic synthesis, molecular biology, and materials science. These readily reproducible methods cover the preparation of protein conjugates using covalent and noncovalent conjugation, the synthesis of nucleic acid conjugates using a variety of labeling techniques, and approaches to semisynthetic conjugates of proteins. Additional chapters address the biofunctionalization of inorganic surfaces, including the on-chip synthesis of peptide nucleic acids to generate microarrays for the high-throughput analysis of RNA and DNA, gold nanoparticles, and carbon nanotube probes for atomic force microscopy. All the protocols follow the successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, each one offering step-by-step laboratory instructions, an introduction outlining the principle behind the technique, lists of the necessary equipment and reagents, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Cutting-edge and highly practical, Bioconjugation Protocols: Strategies and Methods offers both novice and experienced researchers access to the broad array of techniques needed to master the semisynthesis of functional biomolecular reagents for a wide variety of applications-ranging from novel biomedical diagnostics, to powerful new therapeutics, to advanced biomaterials.show more
