Methods in Neurosciences: Neuropeptide Technology - Synthesis, Assay, Purification and Processing v. 6
No other area in the neurosciences has blossomed to the extent of neuropeptide technology. The new approaches that allow rapid isolation and sequencing and the availability of procedures for the synthesis of neuropeptides have led to major advances in this area. The book provides representative examples of useful techniques in neuropeptide technology. It features a convenient benchtop format; methods for easy adaptation to new systems and comprehensive protocols included for identification and purification of neuropeptides, neuropeptide synthesis, identification of neuropeptide modification, quantitation of neuropeptides antiserum generation and use in immunoassay and assays for enzymes that process and degrade neuropeptides.
