The Integrin Interactome
This volume provides the most cutting edge technologies related to the study of integrin activation and the characterization of their vast interactomes. Chapters detail protocols on experimental approached to quantify focal adhesion parameters, integrin activation, and the lateral interaction of integrins with transmembrane binding partners. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
Authoritative and cutting-edge, The Integrin Interactome: Methods and Protocols aims to give the reader a multi-scale journey from single bonds inside protein structures to the function of these crucial adhesion receptors at a whole organism level in physiology and pathology.
