not yet rated|write a review
Recent developments have shown that proteins can undergo a diverse range of modifications by lipid which can dramatically effect their structural and functional properties. These modifications include acylation, isoprenylation, and the attachment of glycolipid. Lipid modifications of proteinsplay important roles in cellular signalling, protein targeting and cellular growth and differentiation - the enzymes which catalyse these reactions are alreadt being seen as novel therapeutic targets. The biochemical, cell biological, and molecular biological techniques being used in this rapidlyexpanding field are becoming increasingly sophisticated. Lipid Modification of Proteins: A Practical Approach is a unique guide to the latest methods in use, written by the acknowledged experts in the field. Detailed protocols are provided for all the key techniques, and the relevant background material is included. This book will be an essential manualfor a wide range of scientists studying the modification of protein by lipids, including membrane and protein biochemists, cell biologists, immunologists, bacteriologists, parasitologists, and virologists.

Editorial Reviews

'The book is packed with technical details in the now familiar style of the Practical Approach series. It is an excellent and lucid volume with contributions from many of the foremost researchers in the field of lipid modifications, and is clearly intended as a companion in the researchlaboratory. Since there are no comprehensive tests on lipid-associated proteins, this book will also have a place as a reference volume on the bookshleves of graduate students and lecturers in many biochemistry and cell biology departments.'Petr Robinson, Biochemical Education 21(3) 1993
