The metabolism and functions of inositol phosphates impinge on various branches of biochemistry, physiology, and molecular biology, and methodological information is in consequence scattered far and wide. This book unites a selection of the most fundamental and commonly used techniques fromleading international signal transduction laboratories, and brings together many valuable protocols for purifying and assaying inositides and related compounds. A novel feature is a catalogue of non-commercial sources of synthetic inositide analogues.

Editorial Reviews

"The graphs, diagrams, tables, and few half-tone illustrations are of good to excellent quality...The book is small and easy to handle and read...Complete list of suppliers at the end of the book....This small, well-written book should be useful for those who do not regularly work in this field. Itcontains clearly written and presented lab protocols that should be easy for anyone to follow and make work in their own laboratory."--Doody's Journal
