Force Microscopy
Applications in Biology and Medicine
edited by Bhanu P. Jen

Force Microscopy describes the molecular machinery and mechanism of cell secretion and membrane fusion in cells, using approaches that combine AFM, electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, photon correlation spectroscopy, molecular biology, biochemistry, and electrophysiology.

Features:

  • Identification of the "porosome" in the growth hormone secreting cell of the pituitary gland
  • Probing the structural and physical properties of microbial cell surfaces
  • Scanning probe microscopic characterization of the higher plant cell wall and its components
  • Case studies of nano drug delivery systems using engineered dendrimers
  • AFM techniques for studying living cells
  • Investigating the intermolecular forces of leukocyte adhesion molecules
  • Protein-protein interactions
  • Micromechanical properties of lipid bilayers and vesicles
