Features and Benefits

Master protocols for analyzing neuropeptide structure and function. Techniques presented for extracting and purifying neuropeptides from a variety of biological sources for their sequence determination by Edman degradation and PCR. Also contains chapters on molecular modeling, radioisotopic labeling, production of antisera and the assay and inhibition of neuropeptidases.
