About this book


This volume provides methods and protocols on dynamin superfamily GTPases. Chapters are divided into three parts; detailing expression, purification, initial biochemical steps, undescribed analytical techniques, and biophysical and cellular characterization of DSPs in membrane remodeling, fission and fusion. 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, Dynamin Superfamily GTPases: Methods and Protocols to ensure successful results in the further study of this vital field.
