cDNA Preparation and Characterization: Volume 303
Methods for studying levels of mRNA and their changes in different physiological circumstances are rapidly evolving, and the information from this area will rival the superabundance of information derived from genomic sequences. In particular, cDNAs can be prepared even from single cells, and this approach has already yielded valuable information in several areas. To the extent that reliable and reproducible information, both quantitative and qualitative, can be generated from very small numbers of cells, there are rather remarkable possibilities for complementing functional and genetic analysis of developmental patterns with descriptions of changes in mRNAs. Dense array analysis promises to be particularly valuable for the rapid expression pattern of known genes, while other methods such as gel display approaches offer the opportunity of discovering unidentified genes or for investigating species whose cDNAs or genomes have not been studied intensively.
Knowledge of mRNA structure, genomic location, and patterns of expression must be converted into information of the function of the encoded proteins. Each gene can be the subject of years of intensive study. Nevertheless, a number of methods are being developed that use cDNA to predict properties or permit the selective isolation of cDNAs encoding proteins with certain general properties such as selective isolation of cDNAs encoding proteins with certain general properties such as subcellular location. This volume presents an update of a number of approaches relevant to the areas referred to above. The technology in this field is rapidly evolving and these contributions represent a "snapshot in time" of the number of currently available and useful approaches to the problems referred to above.
The critically acclaimed laboratory standard for more than forty years, Methods in Enzymology is one of the most highly respected publications in the field of biochemistry. Since 1955, each volume has been eagerly awaited, frequently consulted, and praised by researchers and reviewers alike. Now with more than 300 volumes (all of them still in print), the series contains much material still relevant today--truly an essential publication for researchers in all fields of life sciences.

"The Methods in Enzymology series represents the gold-standard."
"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."
"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."
"A series that has established itself as a definitive reference for biochemists."
