- We can order this
Acting principally to control patterns of gene expression, nuclear receptors play vital roles during embryonic development and in the regulation of metabolic and reproductive functions in adult life, which proves this superfamily of ligand-activated transcription factors to be a crucial part of biological life. In The Nuclear Receptor Superfamily: Methods and Protocols, expert researchers describe a range of molecular, structural and cell biological techniques currently used to investigate the structure-function of nuclear receptors, together with experimental approaches that may lead to new therapeutic strategies for treating nuclear receptor-associated diseases. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, the chapters in this volume contain brief introductions to the topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, as well as notes from the experts to highlight tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
Cutting-edge and easy to use, The Nuclear Receptor Superfamily: Methods and Protocols provides beneficial and time-saving guidance for all those undertaking research in this ever-growing field of study.

From the reviews:
"The primary focus is on cellular biology, biochemistry and molecular biology. ... It is written for a wide range of basic science and clinical researchers interested in transcriptional control of gene expression ... . Biomedical scientists and clinicians ... will appreciate the wealth of new information presented by the authors, all experts in the field. ... This is an outstanding contribution to the literature. ... This carefully edited collection of protocols will be valued by all those interested in steroid hormones and nuclear receptors." (Bruce A. Fenderson, Doody's Review Service, May, 2009)"This book form part of the series Methods in Molecular Biology and describes methods commonly used to investigate the structural and functional relationship of nuclear receptors, as well as the physiopathology and potential pharmacologic agents for use in therapy of these disorders. ... On consulting this book, researchers, students and professionals in the areas of biology and public health will have an opportunity to update their knowledge of experimental methods and applications of functional studies of nuclear receptors and their therapeutic implications."
