By Leung Kwok-Sui, Ling Qin, Wing-hoi Cheung

This handbook presents technical protocols for musculoskeletal examine on a translational foundation, i.e. a disease-orientated method. It deals information on a variety of laboratory innovations, together with phone tradition and molecular biology, histology and histomorphometry, microscopy and bioimaging, laboratory animal types, CT- and MRI-based densitometry and microarchitectural research, biomechanics and sensible research of orthopedic kinesiology, and so forth. The content material is easy and simple, with illustrations and step by step approaches as a simple experimental reference for body of workers in simple and medical musculoskeletal study and schooling. This e-book will offer a special multidisciplinary platform for numerous professions -- not just orthopedics, but additionally biomedical engineering and biomaterial sciences -- concerning either uncomplicated and medical medication.

Contents: phone tradition and Molecular Biology; Histology and Histomorphometry; Microscopy and Bioimaging; Laboratory Animal types; X-Ray- and MRI-based Densitometry; Biomechanics and movement research

We believe, on the basis of experience acquired by us and other investigators to date, that the technology of gene array analysis can make significant contributions to musculoskeletal research.

Test and reference RNA samples are then reverse-transcribed and labeled with different fluorodyes (Cy5 and Cy3), which fluorescence in different (red and green, respectively) wavelength bands; these are hybridized to the microarray. The fluorescence of each dye is then measured for each feature (gene) using laser excitation, and converted to relative expression levels in the two samples. in the test and reference samples (Starkey 2001; Du et al. 2006; Zheng et al. 2005). The most widely used method of array fabrication is the robotic spotting of individual DNA clones onto a coated glass slide.
