This volume provides a wide range of protocols used in studying the nuclear envelope, with special attention to the experimental adjustments that may be required to successfully investigate this complex organelle in cells from various organisms. The Nuclear Envelope: Methods and Protocols is divided into five sections: Part I – Nuclear Envelope Isolation; Part II – Nuclear Envelope Protein Interactions, Localization, and Dynamics; Part III – Nuclear Envelope Interactions with the Cytoskeleton; Part IV – Nuclear Envelope-Chromatin Interactions; and Part V – Nucleo-Cytoplasmic Transport. Many of the modifications discussed in this book have only been circulated within laboratories that have conducted research in this field for many years. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Cutting edge and thorough, The Nuclear Envelope: Methods and Protocols is a timely resource for researchers who have joined this dynamic and rapidly growing field
