Description

Neuropeptides exhibit multiple functions as hormones and regulators. As such, many techniques are required to understand the contribution and functions of neuropeptides in health and disease processes. Research in the neuropeptide field is aimed toward a better understanding of the physiology of the human body and toward the development of better diagnostics and therapeutics. This book will familiarize the audience with forefront techniques in the field.show more

Review quote

From the reviews: "Novel molecular techniques have been developed to better understand peptide function in health and disease. This book deals with the most recent protocols for investigation of peptide function. ... Neuroscientists are the main audience. ... With well written text and excellent diagrams, the book delves into the intricacies of peptide research, including tissue preparation, methods of DNA inoculation, and experimental mouse models of peptide research. ... is a good book for neuroscience libraries."

Back cover copy

Major advances in molecular biology, alternative RNA splicing, protein processing, identification of gene control elements, transgenic animals and bioinformatics open up multiple research avenues and allow for better understanding of neuropeptide production and function. With a selected description of techniques in neuropeptide research, Neuropeptide Methods covers aspects of design, synthesis and biological evaluation of peptides and peptide analogues. Written by leaders in the field, this book explains primary cell cultures and cell lines, as well as techniques in neuropeptide processing, trafficking and secretion. In vivo techniques quantifying blood-brain barrier permeability to small proteins in mice and developmental milestones of behavior in newborn mice are described. Neuropeptide Methods provides the reader with broad perspectives and breadth of knowledge on current topics related to neuropeptide research.show more
