About this book
Given the versatile utility of the determinination of epitopes, beneficial to a wide variety of scientists from immunologists to structural biologists to biotechnologists, the need for a thorough, state-of-the-art collection of experimental protocols is clear. In Epitope Mapping Protocols, Second Edition, expert contributors from a broad spectrum of scientific backgrounds update and expand the successful first edition with cutting-edge techniques and applications, including approaches to both antibody or B-cell epitope mapping and T-cell epitope mapping as well as a new section on the profiling of antibody signatures in biological fluids. Written in the popular Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, chapters include brief introductions to the topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and Notes sections, which highlight tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
Comprehensive and up-to-date, Epitope Mapping Protocols, Second Edition is a reliable and valuable reference for all those who wish to understand and further investigate the diversifying field of epitope mapping.
