Praise for the Volume
"Highly recommended. Methods books are an essential aid to the laboratory worker and this series has a well-deserved international reputation and requires no introduction. As usual, the book is very well presented and the list of contributing authors is extremely impressive." --NEUROSCIENCE

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
