About this book


In T Cell Protocols: Development and Activation, Kelly P. Kearse and a panel of laboratory experts describe the step-by-step execution of a wide variety of basic and specialized techniques for the study of T cell developmental biology and of their subsequent activation. Readily reproducible, the techniques are explained concisely, but in such detail that they are suitable for both the novice and experienced investigator. Coverage includes treatment of both fundamental and novel experimental protocols for the analysis of the role T cells play in immune function and in the prevention and cure of human diseases.
Practical and timely, T Cell Protocols: Development and Activation offers basic scientists and clinical investigators a valuable compendium of key protocols that will improve skills with existing methods, as well as afford rapid mastery of powerful new techniques.
