Cytokines are important regulators of cellular communication, playing a central role in tissue development and repair, immunity and inflammation. They are also implicated in the pathophysiology of many infectious, autoimmune, and malignant diseases, and form the basis of novel therapeutic approaches. Their production is subject to complex and strict control, with local generation of a network of transiently induced cytokines.
Cytokines: A Practical Approach contains up-to-date methods for the study of cytokines, their receptors, and cytokine-driven processes, together with an overview of current cytokine biology. It provides a detailed research guide to the cloning, identification, characterization, and assay of cytokines, presenting key methods in molecular and cell biology, biochemistry, and immunology.
