This book brings together recent methods and theoretical approaches developed to dissect the activity and function of bacterial and eukaryotic S
aintenance of C
hromosome (SMC) proteins. The protocols explore numerous subjects such as depletion systems to assess SMC function, genetic manipulation of SMC proteins, chromosomal, biochemical, and microscopy-based assays of SMC activity, as well as theoretical modeling of SMC activity. Written for the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology
series, 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.
Authoritative and practical, SMC Complexes: Methods and Protocols will greatly aid researchers looking into the mechanism of action of SMC complexes on DNA.
