Description

Protides of the Biological Fluids contains the proceedings of the Twenty-First Colloquium held at Brugge in 1973. The Colloquium covers topics on membrane proteins, proteinuria, and new techniques under which comes the automated nephelometric analysis of proteins. The book is organized into three sections according to the topics of the Colloquium. Section A, Membrane, discusses all aspects of membrane proteins including their isolation and solubilization, the nature of their lipid-protein interaction and the physical probes used for their characterization. Section B, Urinary Proteins, centers on proteinuria, electrophoretic and immunoelectrophoretic methods enabling characterization of renal disease, and properties of specific urinary proteins and enzymes. The last section describes two immunological methods for protein quantitation.
