Description

In Heme, Chlorophyll, and Bilins: Methods and Protocols, an interdisciplinary panel of hands-on investigators describe in detail how to work successfully with chlorophyll, heme, and bilins in biological, medical, chemical, and biochemical research. Each method is presented by a researcher who actually uses it on a daily basis and includes step-by-step instructions and pertinent tricks-of-the-trade that often make the difference between laboratory success and failure. Topics range from methods for the analysis of tetrapyrroles,heme, and hemoproteins, to the biosynthesis and analysis of chlorophyll and bilins.show more

Back cover copy

Although researchers can profitably investigate heme, chlorophyll, and related tetrapyrroles in a wide range of academic and medical research programs, the handling and manipulation of these delicate compounds requires considerable skill and cross-boundary knowledge. In Heme, Chlorophyll, and Bilins: Methods and Protocols, an interdisciplinary panel of hands-on investigators overcomes these limitations by describing in detail how to work successfully with chlorophyll, heme, and bilins in biological, medical, chemical, and biochemical research. Each method is presented by a researcher who actually uses it on a daily basis and includes step-by-step instructions and pertinent tricks-of-the-trade that often make the difference between laboratory success and failure. Topics range from methods for the analysis of tetrapyrroles, heme, and hemoproteins, to the biosynthesis and the analysis of chlorophyll and bilins. Timely and highly practical, Heme, Chlorophyll, and Bilins: Methods and Protocols is a gold-standard collection of readily reproducible techniques suitable for a wide range of researchers, whether it be a clinician studying photodynamic therapy, an ecologist studying the chlorophyll composition of leaves in a tropical forest, or a cell biologist investigating the function of specific hemoproteins.show more
