Short Protocols in Immunology
"Anyone carrying out experiments or creating standard operating procedures would find the easy to follow protocols and reagent preparation information useful." (Canadian Journal of Medical Laboratory Science, 2005)
"…could easily serve as a standard reference in any laboratory. The authors are all well recognized experts in immunology…will quickly help anyone who needs to troubleshoot problems with a standard assay." (Doody’s Health Services)
"This manual contains an excellent mix of basic immunology protocols for beginning and experienced researchers." (E-STREAMS, September 2006)
Short Protocols in Immunology is an easy-to use companion to Current Protocols in Immunology. Drawn from the most fundamental and widely used methods in the well-known parent volume, this book provides step-by-step protocols in their most easily accessible format for use at the bench. Immunologists in basic science and clinical work alike will find techniques they rely on, including production, purification, and fragmentation of antibodies; assays for lymphocyte function; measurement of cytokines and cytokine receptors; biochemistry of lymphocyte activation; innate immunity, isolation of human immune cell populations, detection and analysis of HIV, and animal models for a variety of autoimmune and infectious diseases.
