General description

Leading specialists present a comprehensive review of methods in ion channel localization, and bring together in a single book different aspects of the versatile potential of today′s exciting technology. First part of this volume provides a detailed description of the use of Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP). Second part covers issues related to GFP applications for channel localization. Third section is devoted to latest developments in functional mapping of ion channels. Final section provides a comprehensive description of Atomic Force Microscopy.
