About this book

Jose Ordovas compiles a cutting-edge collection of molecular protein techniques for studying advanced aspects of lipoprotein structure and metabolism. These step-by-step methods allow both the beginning and the advanced researcher to carry out not only fundamental, but also the most advanced genetic screening techniques, including RT-PCR and the preparation of relevant models of transgenic and knockout mice. In addition, novel techniques are presented to characterize plasma lipoproteins, their subfractions, and their modifications, and to determine the activity of relevant enzymes and carrier proteins. Each method is described in easily reproducible detail by a hands-on expert who has perfected it. "Lipoprotein Protocols" offers many powerful tools for unraveling the complexity of lipoprotein metabolism and determining the individual risk of coronary heart disease.

This text makes a good selection with admirable breadth and a high general quality of method description. - Clin Chem Lab Med The book presents the state-of-art of molecular biology and protein techniques specific for lipoprotein research...The book may be especially recommended for students who start working on lipoproteins, but may also be generally helpful for molecular biologists... - Nahrung Each chapter contains, besides a description of the principle of the methods, highly instructive protocols and lists of the technical requirements and reagents. Notes with additional information, e.g. special experimental conditions or safety and technical advises as well as numerous references are given. The book may be especially recommended for students who start working on lipoproteins, but may also be generally helpful for molecular biologists. - Nahrung
