Overview

Distinguished international experts offer critical reviews of the major categories of posttranslational protein modification in neurons, as well as a comprehensive collection of state-of-the-art techniques for their analysis. They provide detailed and specific methods for studying protein phosphorylation/dephospohorylation, methylation, long chain fatty acylation, ADP-ribosylation, glycosylation, and glycosylphosphatidylinositol anchors. Using both conventional analytical and novel molecular biological approaches, these experts present important techniques and reagents and cite numerous examples from the neuroscience literature in a way that allows investigators to determine the best experimental approaches for their own systems. The book offers the most complete review of protein kinase and phosphatase inhibitor applications available.
