About this book

Martin Tymms has created a powerful collection of key techniques for the study of those DNA sequences and protein factors that regulate the transcription of protein encoding genes. This practical compendium includes not only well established protocols, but also novel techniques that are now being widely adopted. Among the important new methods treated are the use of triplex-forming oligonucleotides, the application of whole genome PCR to the isolation of gene promoters/enhancers, the analysis of in vivo methylation, and in vivo footprinting using UV light and ligation-mediated PCR. Transcription Factor Protocols provides both experienced workers and new researchers with a vital first-stop reference for all those exploring the role of transcription factors in gene regulation today.

Transcription Factor Protocols, volume 130 of Humana Press' popular Methods in Molecular Biology series, aids in the study of transcription factors by providing a compilation of methodologies for the study of the complex interactions between transcription factors, proteins, and DNA. Like the other volumes in this series, the techniques in Transcription Factor Protocols are contributed by an international group of scientists well experienced in the methodologies presented the detailed information provided in Transcription Factor Protocols makes it a welcome addition to the reference collection of an academic library that serves scientists who are conducting molecular biology research. It is well representative of the previous volumes in the Methods in Molecular Biology series-Cecelia Brown reviewing for E-Streams "...This book would be a worthwhile addition to the library of any researcher in the general field of transcription regulation...Each of the methods described is accompanied by a well written introductory section setting it in context. The descriptions of the protocols themselves are concisely written in step by step fashion, and readily comprehensible. Recipes for all buffers, with plentiful footnotes describing potential pitfalls, are provided. All chapters end with a detailed bibliography..."-Cell Biology International 2000 "...offers a very complete and up-to-date collection of the techniques needed to explore important aspects in this field...Twenty-two chapters include essential prerequisites, with a clear and extensive coverage of transfection technologies, as well as novel techniques such as the isolation of regulatory DNA sequences by whole genome PCR, functional characterization of such DNA sequences by the use of triplex-forming oligonucleotides, or in vivo footprinting using UV light and ligation-mediated PCR for the identification of protein-bound DNA sequences. The chapters are clearly written by knowledgeable investigators with extensive personal experience of the techniques that the describe. As in previous volumes of the Methods in Molecular Biology series, very detailed step-by-step procedures are provided. Many notes and practical tips are helpful to researchers unfamiliar with the field or new to the most recent and complex strategies." - Cell Biology and Function "...a book of great importance and which should be in the hands of all cellular and molecular biologists." - Cellular and Molecular Biology
