About this book

Due to their vital involvement in a wide variety of housekeeping and specialized cellular functions, exocytosis and endocytosis remain among the most popular subjects in biology and biomedical sciences. Tremendous progress in understanding these complex intracellular processes has been achieved by employing a wide array of research tools ranging from classical biochemical methods to modern imaging techniques. In Exocytosis and Endocytosis, skilled experts provide the most up-to-date,step-by-step laboratory protocols for examining molecular machinery and biological functions of exocytosis and endocytosis in vitro and in vivo. Following the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, the chapters present an introduction outlining the principle behind each technique, a list of the necessary materials, an easy to follow, readily reproducible protocol, and a Notes section offering tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Insightful to both newcomers and seasoned professionals, Exocytosis and Endocytosis offers a unique and highly practical guide to versatile laboratory tools developed to study various aspects of intracellular vesicle trafficking in simple model systems and living organisms.
