This volume contains chapters dealing with the isolation and functional characterization of cells involved in innate immunity in mouse and man, including mast cells and eosinophils, and with several chapters focusing on natural killer cells. These approaches and models are being used to dissect the complex interplay between hosts and pathogens, and contribute to developing strategies to help fight infection.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The methods described in this book include step-by-step protocols to isolate cells that are involved in the innate immune response as well as a variety of other methods that could be useful. . The book is written for laboratory researchers . . It offers a detailed description of the reagents and procedures that are used for each of the protocols and could be used by immunologists, histologists, geneticists, and cell biologists. . an excellent addition to any laboratory which could use these techniques." (Marion C. Cohen, Doody's Review Service, December, 2008)
