About this book


This volume looks at the methodology and techniques used by experts to study how certain molecules function in specific locations, and their temporal patterns. Chapters in this book cover topics such as in vivo single-molecule tracking of voltage-gated calcium channels with split-fluorescent proteins in CRISPR-engineering C. elegans; protein-protein interactions in membranes using single particle tracking; neuropathological diseases revealed by quantum-dot single particle tracking; SPoD-OnSPAN; and investigating molecular diffusion inside small neuronal compartments with two-photon fluorescence correlation spectroscopy. In the Neuromethods series style, chapters include the kind of detail and key advice from the specialists needed to get successful results in your laboratory.

Cutting-edge and comprehensive, Single Molecule Microscopy is a valuable resource for any researcher interested in learning more about this important field.
