Mitosis and Meiosis details the wide variety of methods currently used to study how cells divide as yeast and insect spermatocytes, higher plants, and sea urchin zygotes. With chapters covering micromanipulation of chromosomes and making, expressing, and imaging GFP-fusion proteins, this volume contains state-of-the-art "how to" secrets that allow researchers to obtain novel information on the biology of centrosomes and kinetochores and how these organelles interact to form the spindle. Chapters Contain Information On: * How to generate, screen, and study mutants of mitosis in yeast, fungi, and flies * Techniques to best image fluorescent and nonfluorescent tagged dividing cells * The use and action of mitoclastic drugs * How to generate antibodies to mitotic components and inject them into cells * Methods that can also be used to obtain information on cellular processes in nondividing cells

There continues to be intense interest in the microtubule cytoskeleton; the assembly, structure and regulation of microtubules; and the numerous motors and accessory proteins that control cell cycle, dynamics, organization and transport. The field continues to grow and explore new aspects of these issues driven immensely by developments in optical imaging and tracking techniques. This 2e brings together current research and protocols in the field of microtubules in vitro and will serve as a valuable tool for cell biologists, biophysicists and pharmacologists who study the microtubule cytoskeleton, as well as for researchers in the biomedical and biotechnology communities with interest in developing drugs that target microtubules, MAPS and motors. Chapters reflect experimental procedures and new developments in the field of microtubule in vitro research Combines classical approaches and modern technologies Presents easy-to-use protocols and thorough background information, compiled by leaders in the field

Centrosomes play an integral role in the growth of cells and the ultimate development of many animals, and sometimes plants. In addition to the normal growth of cells, centrosomes can also play a key role in the spread of cancer and are of increased interest to both the genetics and oncology communities. Volume 49 of Current Topics in Developmental Biology will present all known research surrounding the centrosome, across a variety of systems, will be well referenced, and speculate where the research is headed. Discusses centrosomes and cancer, centrosomes and early development, and molecular biology of the centrosome Heavily illustrated, with many color figures Chapters written by international leaders in the field
