 ABOUT THE TITLE
Features
•Focuses on the use of optical probes to track events in single cells and living animals, including current in vivo imaging approaches
•Describes the properties of fluorescent proteins and their importance in the design of fluorescent biosensors
•Explains how Förster/fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET)-based biosensors report key molecular information
•Helps readers choose the best probe design for their application
•Provides detailed discussions on selecting the appropriate imaging experiment and experimental set-up for answering a given biological question
•Covers several promising new techniques, including super-resolution microscopy that can observe biological phenomena in unprecedented spatial detail as well as optogenetic techniques that can both detect and manipulate intracellular events
Summary
Optical probes, particularly the fluorescent varieties, enable researchers to observe cellular events in real time and with great spatial resolution. Optical Probes in Biology explores the diverse capabilities of these powerful and versatile tools and presents various approaches used to design, develop, and implement them.

The book examines the use of optical probes to detect and track numerous molecular processes in living cells, including GTPase and kinase activities, membrane lipids, voltage, metal ions, metabolic signals, RNA, and histone modifications. It critically reviews the different probe designs and delves into the strategies for developing new fluorescent protein varieties with enhanced capabilities. It also covers sophisticated imaging techniques and equipment, such as intensity and lifetime-based fluorescence microscopy methods, used to visualize and track optical probes.

In addition, the book goes beyond live-cell tracking to discuss the growing application of activity-based probes for performing pharmacological drug screening and probing molecular processes in living animals. It also discusses emerging techniques that are expanding optical probe-based approaches into new biological frontiers.

With contributions from top international scientists, this book offers a thorough overview of the latest optical probes in cell biology and biochemistry. Both newcomers and established researchers will discover how to incorporate state-of-the-art optical probes and fluorescence imaging into their research

Editor(s) Bio
Dr. Jin Zhang is a professor of pharmacology, neuroscience, and oncology in the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine with a joint appointment in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering in the Johns Hopkins University Whiting School of Engineering. She has received the American Heart Association National Scientist Development Award, the Biophysical Society Margaret Oakley Dayhoff Award, the National Institutes of Health Director’s Pioneer Award, the American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics John J. Abel Award in Pharmacology, and the American Chemical Society Pfizer Award in Enzyme Chemistry. She was elected a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in 2014.

Dr. Sohum Mehta is a postdoctoral fellow at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, where he is using genetically encoded biosensors to investigate the spatiotemporal mechanisms of calcineurin in living cells and developing novel genetically encoded tools to study intracellular signaling.

Dr. Carsten Schultz is a senior scientist at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg, Germany. He is a member of the German Center for Lung Research. His research focuses on the manipulation and visualization of intracellular signaling networks, with a strong emphasis on lipid and membrane signaling as well as the use of optical probes in translational research. He has received the Heidelberg Molecular Life Science Award and the MRN Innovation Award.
