Containing a comprehensive collection of convenient and quantitative methods for studying centrosomes, spindle pole bodies and related organelles, this text is a valuable resource for researchers and others interested in studying the role of these organelles in cell replication. Chapters outlining the role of these organelles in other cell functions are also included, and a wide variety of experimental systems for analyzing these organelles are presented. Detailed protocols for experiments are contained in each chapter for researchers to perform in their own labs. This volume outlines key methodologies used to analyze centrosomes and spindle pole bodies, their replication, and reproduction in the clear, well-illustrated style of the Methods in Cell Biology series.
