Driven by methodological success in identifying reliable lineage markers, regulatory T cells have quickly been recognized as the most numerous subset of immune regulators in the body with critical functions in a wide array of immune responses. In Regulatory T Cells: Methods and Protocols, experts in the field to offer a collection of current techniques to advance the study of regulatory T cells, including the use of the IL-2 receptor alpha chain and other markers, as well as the more recently desirable use of the transcription factor FoxP3. Divided into three sections, the book covers, in equal measure, in vitro, in vivo, and human studies. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular BiologyT series format, chapters include brief introductions to their respective subjects, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and key tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known methodological pitfalls.Authoritative and cutting-edge, Regulatory T Cells: Methods and Protocols distills the most vital current techniques through several years of optimization and standardization in order to allow reliable and reproducible use by both young and experienced cellular and molecular immunologists.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This book is to provide a detailed and up-to-date collection of methods and protocols utilised for the analysis of regulatory T cells. . this book would be of most use to scientific researchers, in particular PhD students and post-doctoral researchers, working in the field of regulatory T cells within a laboratory setting. For individuals using in vitro or in vivo mouse models for regulatory T cell analysis, this book would be a perfect asset." (Karen Smith, Immunology News, February, 2012)"This volume in the Methods in Molecular Biology series is a collection of current techniques to study regulatory T cells. . Researchers who need to discover techniques to isolate or use regulatory T cells are the primary audience. The authors of the individual chapters are knowledgeable about the techniques they describe. . There are other books that discuss regulatory T cells, but not with the level of procedural detail that this one has. It would be a useful reference for a library . ." (Marion C. Cohen, Doody's Book Reviews, August, 2011)
