Growth Factors and Receptors by Ian McKay

Book Description

Growth Factors and Receptors: A Practical Approach provides comprehensive protocols for studies of growth factors and their interactions with receptors. It covers a wide range from simple analytical techniques to sophisticated in vivo applications including: RT-PCR and immunocytochemistry for detection of growth factors and receptors; production and purification of recombinant growth factors and receptors; labelling of growth factors for binding studies; in vivo mutagenesis; the yeast two-hybrid assay of proteinprotein interactions; phage display of factors; application of factors to wound-healing processes using the gene gun; treatment of cancers with factor/toxin chimeras; and analysis of important factor domains using chimeric proteins. This book updates and extends the current literature and describes important novel approaches to the study of growth factors and their receptors, including the use of RNA aptamers as receptor antagonists, and the development of receptor superantagonists. It will be of tremendous value to both researchers and teachers, and, through an appendix that lists a large number of growth factors and receptors, will serve as a handy reference text.

Growth Factors by Ian McKay Growth Factors, Paperback (March 1993)

Growth factors play an important role in the regulation of proliferation and differentiation of specific cell types. This is a guide to studying growth factors, from the search for and characterization of new activities, to "in vivo" analysis and molecular biology approaches such as DNA cloning.
