About this Item

631 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 1.4in.Since the cloning of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance re- lator (CFTR) nearly a decade ago, cystic fibrosis (CF) research has witnessed a dramatic expansion into new scientific areas. Basic researchers, clinicians, and patients increasingly rely on fundamental techniques of genetics, molecular biology, electrophysiology, biochemistry, cell biology, microbiology, and immunology to understand the molecular basis of this complex disease. Research into the pathophysiology of CF has established numerous paradigms of ion channel dysfunction that extend from inflammation and infection in the airways of patients to basic mechanisms of protein processing and regulation in intracellular components. With these rapid advances has come an increasing need for research scientists to understand and utilize a growing array of basic laboratory tools. This volume of Methods in Molecular Medicine, Cystic Fibrosis Methods and Protocols satisfies that need by providing detailed protocols for the laboratory techniques used throughout CF research. From electrophysiology and cell biology, to animal models and gene therapy, the comprehensive set of methods covered here provide step-by-step instructions needed for investigators to incorporate new approaches into their research programs. Contributions have been chosen to reflect the rich diversity of techniques and to provide a cohesive framework for understanding challenges that are currently at the forefront of CF research. It is hoped that this volume will serve as a valuable reference that will not only foster interdisciplinary investigations into current problems encountered in CF, but also facilitate the translation of new scientific discoveries into clinical solutions.

From the Back Cover:

Since the cloning of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) nearly a decade ago, cystic fibrosis researchers, clinicians, and patients have come to rely increasingly on a diverse array of fundamental techniques to understand the molecular basis of this complex disease. Cystic Fibrosis Methods and Protocols consolidates a broad range of detailed and readily reproducible in vitro, cellular, and whole animal laboratory protocols into an indispensable resource. From electrophysiology and cell biology, to animal models and gene therapy, this comprehensive set of methods provides the step-by-step instructions needed for investigators to incorporate new approaches into their research programs. Specific protocols describe new techniques for diagnosis, in vitro methods for the expression and functional analysis of CFTR, novel biochemical and cellular systems to determine how mutations subvert CFTR function, and in vivo protocols to examine how CFTR dysfunction produces multisystem pathology in human and animal models.
Comprehensive, multidisciplinary, and highly practical, Cystic Fibrosis Methods and Protocols makes accessible to today's cystic fibrosis investigator the powerful new scientific techniques required to investigate the basic science of the disease and to translate this into effective clinical solutions.
