Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Presents a collection of modern molecular methods for analyzing adrenergenic receptors and corresponding second messenger systems. These techniques use genetic, RNA, protein expression, transactivator, and second messenger methodologies, as well as immunocytochemical, electrophysiological, transgenic, and hybridization approaches. Written by researchers from North America and Europe, the volume's 35 contributions provide a valuable collection of reproducible methods for the study of these regulators of CNS-mediated behavior and neural function. Of likely utility to neurobiologists, neurochemists, neurologists, pharmacologists, and others studying this class of receptors. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
