Overview

This volume includes information on arachidonic acid metabolites and platelet activating factor. Assays for the quantitative measurement of prostaglandins, leukotrienes, and platelet-activating factor, including enzyme immunoassays and mass spectrophotometric techniques, are presented. Preparation and analysis of cytochrome P-450 metabolites of arachidonic acid are discussed. The isolation, purification, and assay of enzymes important in the biosynthesis and metabolism of these lipids are included.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for the Volume
"This volume of Methods in Enzymology brings up-to-date the new techniques in the measurement of eicosanoids, the application of molecular biological techniques to eicosanoids, the application of molecular biological techniques to eicosanoid research, and the developments in the study of the action and formation of eicosanoids in cell and tissue systems. The authors are to be commended for bringing together such a truly outstanding compendium, with top-rate articles by most of the leading scientists in the field. The book provides detailed information about individual aspects of eicosanoid research while, at the same time, encompassing the great breadth of the area. It is recommended for all individuals with an interest with eicosanoids and lipid mediators, from graduate students to eminent scientists.
—AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PHYSIOLOGY
"Seemingly immortal series... the chapters are well written and the protocols...can be followed without further reference. This is only to be expected from a standard methods text."
—BIOTECHNOLOGY AND APPLIED BIOCHEMISTRY
Praise for the Series
"The Methods in Enzymology series represents the gold-standard."
—NEUROSCIENCE
"Incomparably useful."
—ANALYTICAL BIOCHEMISTRY
"It is a true 'methods' series, including almost every detail from basic theory to sources of equipment and reagents, with timely documentation provided on each page."
—BIO/TECHNOLOGY
"The series has been following the growing, changing and creation of new areas of science. It should be on the shelves of all libraries in the world as a whole collection."
—CHEMISTRY IN INDUSTRY
"The appearance of another volume in that excellent series, Methods in Enzymology, is always a cause for appreciation for those who wish to successfully carry out a particular technique or prepare an enzyme or metabolic intermediate without the tiresome prospect of searching through unfamiliar literature and perhaps selecting an unproven method which is not easily reproduced."
—AMERICAN SOCIETY OF MICROBIOLOGY NEWS
"If we had some way to find the work most often consulted in the laboratory, it could well be the multi-volume series Methods in Enzymology...a great work."
—ENZYMOLOGIA
"A series that has established itself as a definitive reference for biochemists."
—JOURNAL OF CHROMATOGRAPHY
Booknews
Supplements the earlier Prostaglandins and arachidonate metabolites (v.86 of the series) with the addition of new techniques in the measurement of eicosanoids, of new molecular biological techniques applied to eicosanoid research, and of descriptions of methods used to study the action and formation of eicosanoids in isolated cell and tissue systems.
