The Use of Radioautography in Investigating Protein Synthesis represents the 1965 Symposium on The Use of Radioautography in Investigating Protein Synthesis, supported by the International Society for Cell Biology.
This book is composed of four parts encompassing 18 chapters. The opening part deals first with the basic aspects and mode of operation of the radioautography technique. This part also examines the advantages and potentials of this technique compared to other cytological techniques. The next parts are devoted to the experimental methods of protein synthesis in nucleus and in cells of various types, as revealed by the electron microscope radioautography. The concluding part discusses the secretion and synthesis of protein enzymes by the acinar cells in rat pancreas and fibroblasts in wound healing. This part also considers the application of radioautography to determining the sites of synthesis of proteins.
This book is of great value to cell biologists, biochemists, cytologists, histologists, and pathologists.
