Immunocytochemistry: Practical Applications in Pathology and Biology focuses on the processes, principles, methodologies, and approaches involved in the applications of immunocytochemistry in pathology and biology.

The selection first takes a look at the development and scope of immunocytochemistry; techniques and practice used in immunocytochemistry; and raising and testing antibodies for immunocytochemistry. The book then ponders on raising antibodies to small peptides, use of semithin frozen sections in immunocytochemistry, and colloidal gold probes in immunocytochemistry. Discussions focus on the production of gold probes, localization of mouse serum albumin in the mammary gland, immunogens and the immune response, production of antisera, and antibody specificity in immunocytochemistry.

The publication takes a look at double immunoenzymatic labelling, lectin histochemistry, immunocytochemical localization of noradrenaline, adrenaline, and serotonin, and immunocytochemistry of cell and tissue cultures. Immunocytochemistry in endocrine pathology and indirect immunofluorescence in the study and diagnosis of organ-specific autoimmune diseases are also discussed.

The selection is a dependable source of information for researchers interested the practical applications of immunocytochemistry in pathology and biology.
