This collection of the most important methodologies for the analysis of the structure and function of flavoproteins ranges from wet to dry chemistry. These step-by-step methods - developed by leading experimentalists to work reliably - include the most commonly used techniques as well as a wide range of spectrophotometric protocols that allow direct monitoring of flavins in real time, in the steady state, or as reaction intermediates. Among the techniques detailed are freeze-quench methods, EPR spectroscopy, CD spectroscopy, vibrational spectroscopy (SERRS), and nuclear magnetic resonance. Also discussed are a variety of therapeutic applications for flavins and flavoproteins that go far beyond the use of riboflavin as a vitamin supplement. Flavoprotein Protocols offers to both experts in the field and to those working on a flavin-containing protein for the first time a wealth of proven methods and laboratory experience that will enhance their understanding of structure/function relationships in the proteins and of the effects of the protein environment on flavin chemistry.

As a scientist with an interest in proteins you will, at some time in your career, isolate an enzyme that turns out to be yellow—or perhaps you already have. Alternatively, you may identify a polypeptide sequence that is related to known flavin-containing proteins. This may, or may not, be your first encounter with flavoproteins. However, even if you are an old hand in the field, you may not have exploited the full range of experimental approaches applicable to the study of flavoproteins. We hope that Flavoprotein Protocols will encourage you to do so. In this volume we have sought to bring together a range of experimental methods of value to researchers with an interest in flavoproteins, whether or not these researchers have experience in this area. A broad range of techniques, from the everyday to the more specialized, is described by scientists who are experts in their fields and who have ext- sive practical experience with flavoproteins. The wide range of approaches, from wet chemistry to dry computation, has, as a consequence, demanded a range of formats. Where appropriate (particularly for analytical methods) the protocol described is laid out in easy-to-follow steps. In other cases (e. g. , the more advanced spectroscopies and computational methods) it is far more apt to describe the general approach and relevance of the methods. We hope this wide-ranging approach will sow the seeds of many future collaborations - tween laboratories and further our knowledge and understanding of how f- voproteins work.

Annotation Veteran researchers detail the most widely used experimental and clinical techniques in chemokine biology, covering both ligands and receptors. They describe methods and provide background information for tasks ranging from cloning and characterizing the small proteins and their receptors to using animal models to study their function in vivo. Among the specific topics are purifying chemokines from natural sources, generating stable cell lines expressing receptors, transwell chemotaxis, histamine release, the chemokine inhibition of HIV infection, monoclonal antibodies, and murine models of airway inflammation.

Although the complement system-a vital part of the body's defense against bacteria-was discovered more than a century ago, its study has undergone a renaissance with the identification of its regulatory molecules and the realization that these molecules can be used therapeutically. In Complement Methods and Protocols, B. Paul Morgan and a team of expert laboratorians present a comprehensive set of readily reproducible methods to study this critical system. These cutting-edge techniques are suitable both for the basic scientist interested in understanding complement's mechanisms of activation and for the clinical scientist wishing to quantify its activation, and range from the purification of its components to generating complement-deficient mice by gene deletion. Additional techniques presented include procedures for the analysis of complement function, for the study of its regulators, for detection of its activation in vivo, and for the identification of its autoantibodies. Comprehensive and cutting-edge, Complement Methods and Protocols offers today's basic and clinical investigators powerful tools for the analysis of the role of complement in human pathophysiology and disease, as well as its therapeutic regulation.

This book of protocols is devoted to the yellow coenzymes derived from riboflavin or vitamin B2 and to the hundreds of enzymes whose functionality depends on them, and represents a compendium of techniques for working with flavoproteins or with the wide spectrum of functions that flavoproteins can drive in the cells. Starting with Rf production in microorganisms and the chemical, optical, and redox properties of these fascinating molecules and moving along to the variety and the peculiarity of some single flavoenzymes, the volume explores the complexity of functions and distribution of these molecules in the cell. Written for the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and practical, Flavin and Flavoproteins: Methods and Protocols serves as an ideal guide for protein chemists interested in purifying and characterizing flavoproteins, as well as microbiologists, physiologists, and clinicians, who wish to further study problems connected with flavoproteins.
