Because new information was discovered at an incredible rate since the publication of the successful first edition of this Handbook, this fully updated second edition covers all areas of interest in the field of capillary electrophoresis (CE). A relatively new technology, CE is a principle method for studying the physicochemical properties of proteins, peptides, and other macromolecules. Where applicable, the 30 chapters provide basic underlying theories as well as application-oriented aspects of each technique.Keep up with all the developments in this growing field with the Handbook of Capillary Electrophoresis, Second Edition - a complete guide to the fundamentals of CE and the latest research. The chapters are organized into five units: Modes: Presents a theoretical development of the basic principles governing separation with several modes, including CEC, and discusses their practical aspects. Analyte: Applies CE to the analysis of a specific class of analytes, including organic and inorganic ions, pharmaceuticals, glycoconjugates, peptides, proteins, and DNA fragments. Fundamental Aspects of CE: Technique-oriented information for the practitioner, including the importance of the sample matrix, on-line preconcentration of samples, modes of detection, and specific aspects of CE data analysis. Applications of CE: Includes single cell analysis, CE in DNA sequencing, CE as a clinical diagnostic tool, identifying and quantifying drugs, and for characterizing interacting species. Specialized Aspects of CE: Discusses interfacing CE with mass spectrometry, high-volume throughput continuous CE, microchip CE, control of EOF, and much more. The Handbook of Capillary Electrophoresis, Second Edition, pulls together diverse areas and applications of CE, resulting in an excellent tool for scientists involved in biotechnology and clinical chemistry, as well as the pharmaceutical, bioscience, chemical, and instrument-manufacturing industries. With an applications-oriented focus, the handbook is also a superb manual for workshops, seminars, and graduate courses in separation science.

Die Kapillarelektrophorese (CE) ist heute in biochemischen Laboratorien noch nicht als Routinemethode zur DNA-Trennung etabliert, obwohl sie diverse Vorzüge gegenüber den derzeitigen Methoden besitzt. In diesem Band stellen verschiedene Wissenschaftler die theoretischen Aspekte der Trennung von Oligonucleinsäuren mit der CE, die instrumentellen Grundlagen und deren Grenzen und schließlich die praktische Anwendung in der Biochemie und Molekularbiologie vor. This book on capillary electrophoresis is unique in its focus on the separation of nucleic acids. The importance of electrophoretic separation in every molecular biology laboratory justifies this specialization, which is also reflected in the development of instrumentation. This book is aimed to help to implement this rather new and promising technology in the biological laboratories and to help to overcome typical problems that can occur when starting with a new technique. It should also trigger further development in the field. It covers the theoretical background as well as practical examples of usual applications. The authors are all experts in their field, having many years of experience with capillary electrophoresis and their application to nucleic acids.

NA methylation has bewildered molecular biologists since Hotchkiss discovered it almost six decades ago (Hotchkiss RDJ. Biol Cem 1948; 175:315-332). The fact that the chemical structure of our D genome consists of two components that are covalently bound, the genetic information that is replicated by the DNA replication machinery ana DNA methylation that is maintainea by independent enzymatic machinery, has redictably stimulated the imagination and curiosity of generations of mo Edular biologists. An obvious question was whether DNA methylation was a bearer of additional information to the genetic information and what was the nature of this information? It was tempting to speculate that DNA me thylation applied some form of control over programming of the genome s expression profile. Once techniques to probe the methylation profile of whole genomes as well as specific genes became available, it became clear that DNA methylation patterns are gene and tissue specific and that patterns of gene expression correlate with patterns of methylation. DNA methylation pat terns emerged as the only component of the chemical structure of DNA that exhibited tissue and cell specificity. This data seemingly provided an attrac tively simple explanation for the longstanding dilemma of how could one identical genome manifest itself in so many different forms in multicellular organisms? The DNA methylation pattern has thus become the only known factor to confer upon DNA a unique cellular identity.

In the Unprecedentedly wide-ranging volumes of Capillary Electrophoresis of Nucleic Acids, an outstanding panel of hands-on experts and developers of CE equipment describe in step-by-step fashion their best cutting-edge methods for the detection and analysis of DNA mutations and modifications, ranging from precise DNA loci to entire genomes of organisms. This second volume of the set, Practical Applications of Capillary Electrophoresis, covers techniques for high-throughput analysis of DNA fragments using SNP detection, mutation detection, DNA sequencing methods, and DNA-ligand interactions. Several chapters also discuss CE analysis at elevated temperatures and the use of micro-CE and array-CE devices. The companion volume, Introduction to the Capillary Electrophoresis of Nucleic Acids, offers readily reproducible methods for the analysis of small oligonucleotides and modified nucleotides, and time-tested advice on instrumentation, signal detection, the capillary environment, and the integration of mass spectrometry with CE. Comprehensive and up-to-date, the paired volumes of Capillary Electrophoresis of Nucleic Acids offer an authoritative guide with easy access to fast, versatile, reliable, and powerful technologies for all those basic and clinical investigators analyzing DNA variation today.

This important publication addresses the interactions of proteins with nonspecific binding sites on DNA as they play critical roles in fundamental cellular processes such as transcription, DNA replication, and recombination. The book presents current reviews of the biochemistry of representative nonspecific DNA-protein systems, and of their physiological functions. It includes chapters on the techniques used to characterize the complexes, on their thermodynamic properties, and on the role of nonspecific binding as gene regulatory proteins search for specific target sites on the chromosome. Systems considered include the effects of nonspecific binding in regulation of the lactose operon of Escherichia coli, the T4 bacteriophage gene 32 protein, the E. coli single strand binding (SSB) protein and recA protein, eukaryotic SSB's and histone-DNA complexes. The book presents those proteins displaying multiple modes of DNA binding as participants in more than one cellular process. This monograph combines rigorous descriptions of new findings for these important systems with provocative interpretations of the biological significance of the results. It is of great value to researchers ranging from graduate students to senior scientists in the areas of biochemistry, microbiology and molecular/cell biology.
