About this book
Urine is one of the most easily accessible biological samples, and it provides a treasure trove of molecules essential for clinical diagnostics. In The Urinary Proteome: Methods and Protocols, expert researchers review briefly the classical urine tests that are performed in the clinical laboratory and then delve into the state of the art methods for proteomic analysis using urine specimens. Featuring the most recent advances in sample preparation, data analysis, and methods and applications, the book contains a multitude of detailed methods, including procedural details for the identification and characterization of urine biomarkers, which hold great potential for the diagnosis and treatment of many different disease conditions. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, chapters present brief introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and notes highlighting tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
Authoritative and systematic, The Urinary Proteome: Methods and Protocols is an ideal guide for scientific researchers, clinical laboratorians, clinical and translational scientists, and others interested in the vital study of proteomics and biomarker discovery.
