An international panel of recognized academic physicians, researchers, and clinical laboratory diagnosticians describe their best methods for characterizing neurologically relevant genes, their mutations, and their proteins. Providing detailed step-by-step instructions to assure successful experimental results, these experts cover the key methods for mutation detection and screening, including discussions of quantitative PCR, trinucleotide repeat detection, sequence-based mutation detection, fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), in vitro protein expression systems, and studies of protein expression and function.

Editorial Reviews

"This book provides detailed laboratory methods in its of 32 chapters. Each chapter provides sufficient detail to allow the duplication of the laboratory method. The emphasis is on neurogenetic diseases and the methods are all molecular biological including PCR, DNA sequencing, Western Blot, and Southern Blot. Diseases covered include Huntington's disease, Charcot-Marie-Tooth, Rett's Syndrome, Leber's Optic Atrophy, spinocerebellar ataxias, Parkinson's disease, and neurological mitochondrial diseases.. This is a unique and highly useful book that details laboratory methods in more detail than any comparable book. Laboratory scientists and investigators who wish to use neurogenetic laboratory methods to study these disorders will find great value in this compendium of methodologies."-Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal
