Given the number of exciting developments across the whole spectrum of receptor research in recent years, the editors have not restricted themselves to one particular approach or class of receptors. Thus the studies within range from G protein-coupled surface receptors, to the delivery ofantisense DNA inside living cell systems. A distinguished team of contributors cover these diverse areas, identifying any difficulties likely to be encountered and appropriate steps to overcome them.Wherever appropriate, the theoretical basis of each topic is explained first so that the results emerging from the practical procedures can be fully understood. Anyone with an interest in receptor structure and function will find this book an invaluable resource.
