Description

G Protein-Coupled Receptor Genetics: Research and Methods in the Post-Genomic Era features practical techniques inspired by the fast moving GPCR field. From powerful bioinformatic tools tracing the evolution of GPCRs, to methods for the cellular transfection of engineered viruses containing GPCRs, to optogenetic techniques that produce light-activated GPCRs in live mice, what was once science fiction is now science fact. This detailed volume includes sections covering genetic mechanisms, a genetic toolbox for GPCR discovery, as well as genetic aspects of G protein-coupled receptors in health and medicine. Written for the Methods in Pharmacology and Toxicology series, this book contains the kind of key implementation advice that encourages successful results in the lab. Authoritative and easy to use, G Protein-Coupled Receptor Genetics: Research and Methods in the Post-Genomic Era serves as an ideal guide for researchers aiming to continue our progress in this dynamic and exciting area of study.
