About this book

This readily reproducible collection of cutting-edge methods for the study of eicosanoids concentrates on studying the regulation of expression and function of enzymes, particularly cyclooxygenase (and its two isoforms), phospholipase A2, and lipoxygenases involved in the synthesis of established eicosanoids. Additional chapters are devoted to the characterization and distribution of the thromboxane A2 receptor in tissues and the biological roles of novel eicosanoids. Eicosanoid Protocols offers new and established researchers powerful, state-of-the-art tools to probe the regulation and function of eicosanoids.

well-produced, timely book - The Quarterly Review of Biology A very useful book for all specialists on eicosanoid acids, which was lacking until now in the literature. - Cellular and Molecular Biology
