Biomembrane Protocols, I: Isolation & Analysisby John M. Graham
Synopses & Reviews
Expert practitioners combine the traditional basic techniques of membrane isolation and analysis with modern advances in molecular biology, immunology, and clinical sciences to devise analytical techniques that are successful for expert and novice alike. The techniques are used in the isolation and compositional analysis of membranes and address animal, plant, and microbial cells. The topics covered in this first volume include the isolation of subcellular fractions, centrifugation, the extraction and quantitation of lipids, the separation and analysis of proteins, and the isolation and characterization of glycosylated molecules, glycoproteins, proteoglycans, and glycolipids.
Book News Annotation:
The first volume of a comprehensive two-volume collection of methodologies for studying membrane components and their interactions, gleaned from the areas of biochemistry, physical chemistry, cell biology, molecular biology, immunology, and clinical sciences. Volume 1 is concerned exclusively with the isolation and compositional analysis of membranes, while Volume 2 will deal with their architecture and activities. Experts in the field provide step-by-step technical and methodological information to enable successful performance of each technique. Plastic comb binding.
