NLR Proteins: Methods and Protocols is published by Humana Press in June 2016. This book has 256 pages in English, ISBN-13 978-1493935642.
This volume provides a sound basis for the molecular investigation of NLR function in health and disease. Chapters focus on of innate immune receptors, “atypical” inflammasomes, biochemical and novel bioluminescence techniques for the measurement of IL-1b, bioluminescent probe, biochemical and microscopy techniques, techniques to measure caspase-1 activation, cell free systems for the study of inflammasome function, and inflammasome activation. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
