Yanagida (Osaka University Graduate School of Frontier Biosciences) and Ishii (Core Research for Evolutional Science and Technology, Japan Science and Technology Agency) gather pioneers in the field of single molecule science to show how to set up and interpret a single molecule experiment. Following an introduction to single molecule measurements and enzymology, contributors consider molecular motors and mechanical properties, then move on to applications. Detailed discussions of studies on protein enzymes, ribozymes, and nucleic acids are also included. Some chapter topics include imaging and molecular motors, signal transduction across the plasma membrane, single-molecule tracking of quantum dot liganded epidermal growth factor, single- molecule FRET studies of helicases and Holliday junctions, and high- speed atomic force microscopy for nano-visualization of biomolecular processes. Baw and color images and illustrations are included.
