@from:From the Preface: Chemotaxis and inflammation, as many other biological processes, can be divided into humoral and cellular components. In this simplest sense soluble activators or mediators of host or external origin interact with cells that respond to signals received and transmitted via specific membrane receptors. The biological consequences are dramatic, and the biochemical mechanisms are complex and interrelated through a series of cascades that may involve several chemical messengers of different chemical classes. Volumes 162 and 163 of Methods in Enzymology cover in vitro and in vivo methodology that has been developed for the purpose of studying the biochemistry of these active humoral factors and the biology of the cells and their receptors that respond to the various signals... The literature dealing with chemotaxis and inflammation is extensive and new techniques are constantly being developed. Therefore, some selection has been necessary to include the most commonly used and generally applicable techniques. Newer methods often involve significant modifications of established procedures, and we have tried to insure that these innovations have been included.


Biochemists, immunologists, microbiologists, pharmacologists, toxicologists, physiologists, clinical chemists, cell and molecular biologists, and biomedical scientists.

@from:Praise for the Series @qu:"The Methods in Enzymology series represents the gold-standard." @source:--NEUROSCIENCE @qu:"Incomparably useful." @source:--ANALYTICAL BIOCHEMISTRY @qu:"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." @source:--BIO/TECHNOLOGY @qu:"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." @source:--CHEMISTRY IN INDUSTRY @qu:"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." @source:--AMERICAN SOCIETY OF MICROBIOLOGY NEWS @qu:"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." @source:--ENZYMOLOGIA @qu:"A series that has established itself as a definitive reference for biochemists." @source:--JOURNAL OF CHROMATOGRAPHY
