About this book

Anthony Howlett and a distinguished panel of experimentalists describe in detail a series of cutting-edge methods for dissecting the role of integrins in biological processes. This wide-ranging collection includes protocols for the analysis of integrin expression - at both the RNA and protein levels - and for elucidating the functional properties of integrins, including those at the cellular level. Each method provides step-by-step instructions for easy reproducibility, along with extensive notes about potential pitfalls, and tips on how to avoid failure. Offering powerful tools for understanding how integrins regulate cell growth, differentiation, migration, invasion, angiogenesis, and apoptosis as well as how abnormalities of integrin expression and function may be implicated in various pathologic conditions, Integrin Protocols constitutes a gold-standard collection of techniques for both new and experienced investigators of the molecular and cellular basis of cardiovascular disease, inflammatory disorders, and cancer.

Integrin Protocols aims to provide a hand-book of methods for the study of integrins. Many of the essential techniques are covered, with sections ranging from the relatively straight-forward (immunoblotting) to the highly complex (phage display and knock-outs)...Over half of the sections are by major figures in the integrin field, thus giving the book considerable authority... - Cell Biology International 2000
