Praise for the Volume
"...the book describes techniques so diverse that they include all major laboratory approaches of modem biochemistry, cell biology, and molecular biology. It provides step-by-step protocols and overviews in the field that also allow newcomers to obtain an orientation over a wide spectrum of aspects... The content is very carefully edited for clarity and precision of the described procedures. Anyone in possession of the equipment needed will be able to reproduce the described conditions and methods." --DOODY'S PUBLISHING REVIEWS

Praise for the Series
"The Methods in Enzymology series represents the gold-standard." --NEUROSCIENCE

"Incomparably useful." --ANALYTICAL BIOCHEMISTRY

"It is a true 'methods' series, including almost every detail from basic theory to sources of equipment and reagents, with timely documentation provided on each page." --BIO/TECHNOLOGY

"The series has been following the growing, changing and creation of new areas of science. It should be on the shelves of all libraries in the world as a whole collection." --CHEMISTRY IN INDUSTRY

"The appearance of another volume in that excellent series, Methods in Enzymology, is always a cause for appreciation for those who wish to successfully carry out a particular technique or prepare an enzyme or metabolic intermediate without the tiresome prospect of searching through unfamiliar literature and perhaps selecting an unproven method which is not easily reproduced." --AMERICAN SOCIETY OF MICROBIOLOGY NEWS

"If we had some way to find the work most often consulted in the laboratory, it could well be the multi-volume series Methods in Enzymology...a great work." --ENZYMOLOGIA

"A series that has established itself as a definitive reference for biochemists." --JOURNAL OF CHROMATOGRAPHY
