Fluorescence is an extremely powerful tool in modern biology, physics, and chemistry laboratories. This unit focuses on methods that can be applied to biological studies. Starting with the preparation of fluorescently conjugated antibodies, the first part explains the physical principles of fluorescence and the features in an absorption spectrum, and how these are used to measure the degree of labeling on conjugated antibodies. The protocols describe how to obtain and interpret a fluorescence emission spectrum and utilize this information as a fluorescence indicator for protein detection. Curr. Protoc. Essential Lab.
