About the book

Protein detection is an easy method but requires precision. While many techniques make the detection simplified, the information that cannot be resolved with a single method can be handled with complementary methods. A range of techniques may provide options but sample size, composition, and origin are critical properties in choosing the right technique. It should be noted that not all proteins are straight amino acid polymers rather formed from chimeric structures. Further, the location and physical properties of proteins bring additional considerations. Imagine a membrane protein that is embedded into a lipid bilayer and an acidic protein. Therefore, selecting proper conditions such as pH buffered solutions set the right agenda for the detection. The cellular milieu and tissue environment bring additional precautions including off-targeting and interference with other macromolecules. Protein chemistry is unique and proper selection to provide the right detection. For this reason, this book covers comprehensive and innovative techniques in protein detection and may be useful for the scientific community.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Marijana Francetic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
