Summary:To prepare synchronized cells representing different stages of the cell cycle has been a great challenge for researchers across the globe.  In Cell Cycle Synchronization: Methods and Protocols, experts in the field supply detailed protocols providing first the theoretical background of the procedure then step-by-step instructions on how to implement synchronization as well as the latest techniques for the enhanced study of regulatory mechanisms to understand cell cycle events.  Describing synchronized cells from asynchronous bacterial, plant, protozoan, yeast, fish, and mammalian cell cultures, the synchronization methods presented in the book are based principally on two major strategies: the “arrest-and-release” approach, which involves different chemical treatments to block cells at certain stages of the cell cycle, and the physical strategy, which contains physical methods to collect cells belonging to subpopulations of the cell cycle.  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.   Detailed and easy to follow,  Cell Cycle Synchronization: Methods and Protocols is an ideal guide for scientists who wish to make use of these powerful synchronization techniques but have no access to thorough, time-tested protocols designed for doing so
