About this book

The application of recombinant DNA technology to the analysis of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is rapidly developing sufficient insight into the virus-host interaction, so that its role in disease pathology is now often discernible and can increasingly be interdicted. In Epstein-Barr Virus Protocols, Joanna Wilson and Gerhard May have assembled a collection of the key molecular biology protocols used in the analysis of Epstein-Barr virus, along with a series of valuable immunology, cell biology, and transgenic mouse protocols. Described in step-by-step detail by experts who use them regularly, these readily reproducible techniques include methods for gene expression with mini-EBV plasmids, for expression analysis by FISH, for EBV detection and quantitation, and for cell proliferation and death assays. In addition, the authors provide information on EBV-based vectors, an up-to-date map of EBV, a comprehensive table of available latent protein antisera, and assays from in vitro to cell to organ to organism levels.
Timely and highly practical, Epstein-Barr Virus Protocols provides powerful tools for elucidating the life cycle of EBV and its host interactions, work that promises the emergence of major new treatments and cures for EBV-associated diseases, including several forms of human cancer.

Reviews

"Timely and highly practical, Epstein-Barr Virus Protocols provides powerful tools for elucidating life cycle of EBV and its host interactions, work that promises the emergence of major new treatments and cures of EVB-associated diseases, including several forms of human cancer." - Anticancer Research

"Overall it is an excellent resource aimed at postgraduate students and young researchers. Protocols are extensively referenced to the primary literature at the end of each chapter." -Today's Life Science

"This book provides a well-written and concise account of many of the protocols currently in use for the study of the Epstein-Barr virus and its related diseases. It is comprehensive..." "Both volumes are laid out attractively...and contain much valuable information on the pharmacological aspects of neurotoxicology, as well as state-of-the-art methodology." -Microbiology Today

"Leading-edge and forward-looking, Tumor Suppressor Genes in Human Cancer illuminates what is currently known of tumor suppressor genes and their regulation, work that is already beginning to revolutionize, and treatment design." -Tumori

"This book is highly recommended for collections serving researchers in the area of molecular biology." -E-Streams
