Cystic Fibrosis: Methods and Protocols consolidates cutting-edge in vitro, cellular, and whole animal laboratory protocols into an indispensable resource. From electrophysiology and cell biology, to animal models and gene therapy, this comprehensive set of methods provides the step-by-step instructions needed for investigators to incorporate new approaches into their research programs. Specific protocols describe new techniques for diagnosis, in vitro methods for the expression and functional analysis of CFTR, novel biochemical and cellular systems to determine how mutations subvert CFTR function, and in vivo protocols to examine how CFTR dysfunction produce multisystem pathology in both human and animal models.

Editorial Reviews

"The coverage of methodologies is extremely broad and will be useful for those wanting to find out more about some of the less routine techniques used in the analysis of the CFTR protein/chloride channel. The style of protocol-based chapters enables in manuscripts due to considerations of space or potential repetition of previously published techniques. As such many of the chapters are valuable." -Molecular Biotechnology"Undoubtedly this book will be regarded as essential reading for scientists in the field. It provides details of research methodology, which are rarely published in peer reviewed journals. It will also enable researchers to identify subtle differences in techniques in their own laboratories from those described in these chapters. As such, it will be a very important book for all those who conduct laboratory-based research into cystic fibrosis." -Journal of Paediatrics and Child Health
