The metabolism and functions of inositol phosphates impinge on various branches of biochemistry, physiology, and molecular biology, and methodological information is in consequence scattered far and wide. This book unites a selection of the most fundamental and commonly used techniques from leading international signal transduction laboratories, and brings together many valuable protocols for purifying and assaying inositides and related compounds. A novel feature is a catalogue of non-commercial sources of synthetic inositide analogues.
