With nearly one hundred years of intensive study, lipids have proven to be a vital and ever-more-promising area of cell biological research. In Liposomes: Methods and Protocols, leading experts in the related fields explore cutting-edge experimental methods involving all aspects of lipids as essential components of the cell membrane. Volume 2: Biological Membrane Models focuses on detailed methods for the use of liposomes in studying a variety of biochemical and biophysical membrane phenomena concomitant with chapters describing a great palette of state-of-the-art analytical technologies. As a volume in the highly successful Methods in Molecular BiologyT series, the chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and notes on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.Comprehensive and authoritative, Liposomes: Methods and Protocols promises to be an essential source of practical know-how for every investigator, young and seasoned alike, whose research area involves in one way or another phospholipids, glycolipids, or cholesterol.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"Provide a comprehensive guide to the preparation, characterisation, and potential use of currently known types of liposomes. They are written using an interdisciplinary approach, and so provide essential knowledge of liposomes, for not only researchers in this particular field, but also scientists in wider pharmaceutical and biological areas. . very inspiring - the potential for liposomes is immense - and these well-written chapters ignited notions of further applications - this is clearly a very exciting field." (Trudy L. Knight, BTS Newsletter, Issue 37, Winter, 2010)
