Molecular biology has revolutionized research into vascular disease. Over the past 20 years molecular techniques have enabled us to both elucidate - lecular mechanisms in vascular disease and identify appropriate therapies. The vast explosion in technical knowledge and the array of protocols that become more advanced and intricate by the day lead us into new and exciting areas of research that were previously unobtainable. Vascular Disease: Molecular Biology and Gene Transfer Protocols - scribes today's most powerful molecular methods for the investigation of the pathogenesis of vascular disease. The protocols are highly detailed, allowing beginners who have little experience in either vascular biology or molecular biology to embark on new molecular projects. This book is also suited to more experienced molecular biologists who wish to grasp new methods for stu- ing the involvement of genes in normal vascular physiology and in diseased states. It is well established that cardiovascular disease progression has a s- stantial genetic influence. Part I describes three methods that have been used successfully to identify specific mutations in candidate genes involved in c- diovascular disorders. These mutations include both single-stranded conf- mational polymorphism analysis and heteroduplex detection methods. In addition, technology to map new genes to specific regions of chromosomes by high-resolution mapping is described.

"...The chapters are clearly written so that complex techniques are reduced to their individual components...this book will be a major asset to a molecular biology laboratory involved in vascular research."-Atherosclerosis

"This collection of very detailed molecular biology protocols was compiled...The first five parts present protocols that are designed to identity and characterize genes in cardiovascular disease, including methods for detecting specific gene mutation, identifying new genes, characterizing the levels and regulation of expression of the new genes, and apoptotic methods. The final two parts contain in vivo and in culture gene transfer protocols used in cardiovascular disease and protocols for clinical gene excellent reference for molecular biologists in the field of vascular disease." - Quarterly Review of Biology

"...the authors of the individual chapters have made every effort to relate their particular techniques to the study of vascular tissues....the editor has assembled a broad base of well established authors to describe their protocols....this is a good book....this book may prove worthwhile in helping to ease the load on the typical physician-scientist trying to care for patients and at the same time direct his or her laboratory research program."- Texas Heart Institute Journal

"The book is the result of the contribution of distinguished experts in the field. Each chapter of the book is introduced by a theoretical summary of the goal of the technique with excellent diagrams followed by the material used, the basic procedures and the methods. Critical notes and references end each chapter. This important publication directed to molecular biologists covers the latest aspects of molecular procedures for the study of cardiovascular diseases and confirms, if necessary, the irreversible revolution in cardiovascular research."- Acta Cardiologica
