Cytokine Molecular Biology concentrates on molecular biology techniques for the study of cytokines, cytokine receptors, and cytokine driven processes. Updated topics from the previous edition are: the cloning and expressing cytokine genes;; the detection of cytokine mRNA; receptor bindingstudies; the PC-specific phosphslipase C and sphingomylinases. In addition, new topics covered are the purification, sequencing, and synthesis of cytokines; studying cytokine gene polymorphisms; the use of proteomics in cytokine research; and the Jak/STAT and MAPK signalling pathways. Written byexperts in the field, Cytokine Molecular Biology and Cytokine Cellular Biology form a comprehensive and essential guide to cytokine research.
