This volume contains information on analyzing sphingolipids, sphingolipid transport and trafficking, and sphingolipid-protein interactions and cellular targets. Its companion Volume 311 presents methods used in studying enzymes of sphingolipid biosynthesis and turnover, including inhibitors of some of these enzymes, genetic approaches, and organic and enzymatic syntheses of sphingolipids and analogs.
The critically acclaimed laboratory standard for more than forty years, Methods in Enzymology is one of the most highly respected publications in the field of biochemistry. Since 1955, each volume has been eagerly awaited, frequently consulted, and praised by researchers and reviewers alike. Now with more than 300 volumes (all of them still in print), the series contains much material still relevant today–truly an essential publication for researchers in all fields of life sciences.
Emory Univ., Atlanta, GA. Presents techniques useful for investigation exploring the role of sphingolipids. Includes assays of enzymes of sphingolipid biosynthesis and turnover, and their purification, cloning, expression, and characterization. For researchers. Halftone illustrations.
