This volume of Methods in Enzymology and its companion Volume 238 include molecular, biological, and biochemical methods for the study of cell surface heterotrimeric G proteins (Volume 237) and their effectors (Volume 238). Methods unique to signal transducing G proteins and general techniques applied to the study of G protein systems are covered.

Praise for the Volume "This is another welcome addition to the excellent 'Methods in Enzymology series... The 'Methods in Enzymology series represents the gold-standard, but even in this context the present volume is special. The list of contributors is impressive, the wide coverage of the field fills a much-needed gap... The best book of its kind on the market. This volume therefore represents extremely good value for money, especially given the relatively long shelf-life of methodology books." --NEUROSCIENCE "I suspect my copy will rapidly acquire the battered look common to well-used techniques manuals once I release it to the laboratory." --Patrick J. Casey in TRENDS IN CELL BIOLOGY Praise for the Series "The Methods in Enzymology series represents the gold-standard." --NEUROSCIENCE "Incomparably useful." --ANALYTICAL BIOCHEMISTRY "It is a true 'methods' series, including almost every detail from basic theory to sources of equipment and reagents, with timely documentation provided on each page." --BIO/TECHNOLOGY "The series has been following the growing, changing and creation of new areas of science. It should be on the shelves of all libraries in the world as a whole collection." --CHEMISTRY IN INDUSTRY "The appearance of another volume in that excellent series, Methods in Enzymology, is always a cause for appreciation for those who wish to successfully carry out a particular technique or prepare an enzyme or metabolic intermediate without the tiresome prospect of searching through unfamiliar literature and perhaps selecting an unproven method which is not easily reproduced." --AMERICAN SOCIETY OF MICROBIOLOGY NEWS "If we had some way to find the work most often consulted in the laboratory, it could well be the multi-volume series Methods in Enzymology...a great work." --ENZYMOLOGIA "A series that has established itself as a definitive reference for biochemists." --JOURNAL OF CHROMATOGRAPHY
