This wide-ranging collection of state-of-the-art techniques for the assay of phospholipid and phospholipid-derived second messengers allows the identification and quantification of signal pathway activation. The assays described cover all the major phospholipases (C, D, A2), as well as sphingomyelinase and associated metabolites. Additional protocols are provided for the assay of phosphoinositide 3-, 4-, and 5-kinase activity and for the separation and identification of phospholipids, diacylglycerol and sphingolipids, as well as their phosphoinositol, choline, and fatty acid metabolites. Detailed, step-by-step instructions make this book suitable for both the newcomer and the experienced investigator.
... the detailed information provided in Phospholipid Signaling Protocols makes it a welcome addition to an academic library that serves scientists actively working in the area of second messenger and membrane lipid chemistry. It is well representative of the previous volumes in the Methods in Molecular Biology series, and therefore is a worthwhile acquisition. - E-Streams ...this book is an extremely valuable resource for methodology in studying the molecular species of key phospholipid signaling molecules, as well as the enzymes that produce or degrade them. I personally have used several protocols in this book, and have not had any trouble adapting the methods to my own applications. - The Quarterly Review of Biology ...gives an excellent overview of the most common techniques in use as well in biochemistry and molecular biology...The editor is to be congratulated for putting these diverse, very important protocols together... - Cell Biology International 2000 does a very good job of covering what is a fairly diverse field and the protocols described would allow any well equipped laboratory to tackle lipid analysis. There are currently very few books on the market addressing this important area of biochemistry and this volume would be a valuable addition to the collection of any laboratory studying lipid signaling molecules. - Molecular Biotechnology does a very good job covering what is a fairly diverse field and the protocols described would allow any well equipped laboratory to tackle lipid analysis.
