In this updated volume, experts from around the world provide the latest protocols for isolating different organelles and the localization of particular proteins using a variety of methods such as light, confocal, and electron microscopy. Emphasis is placed on protein targeting of cellular compartments in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic systems. The book includes targeting protocols from different more
