About this book

A unique collection of step-by-step methods for the characterization, purification, and expression of mammalian lipases and phospholipases. The methods include the preparation of a variety of unique substrates for the determination of lipolytic activity, the isolation of purified lipase preparations, and the development of high expressing recombinant systems. There are also methods for the immunodectection and production of immunological reagents and the analysis of biochemical properties, such as subunit size, lipase kinetics, enzyme immobilization, and ligand interactions. The protocols covers more than a dozen specific enzymes, and provide well-established methods that can be adapted to the discovery of new lipase enzymes.

...The book can be recommended to those scientists who are deeply engaged in lipid chemistry and analysis as well as enzymology. It provides a detailed listing of literature and other sources. Thus it can be successfully used as an introduction to new research fields and experimental techniques... - Nahrung In view of the rapid increase in the number of new lipases and phospholipases that have been recently identified, the focus of this book is timely In this volume, modern, up-to-date protocols with sufficient detail for experienced or peripheral investigators in this area are provided, and should prove to be a valuable resource. - The Quarterly Review of Biology
