Summary Dopamine, a catecholamine transmitter, plays a number of vital physiological roles in the brain and body, and, in recent years, studies on the role of dopamine in disease have opened new avenues of research and discovery. In Dopamine: Methods and Protocols, experts and key figures within the field provide detailed protocols on leading approaches in the study of dopamine within biological systems. Divided into sections on cellular/biochemical, imaging, genetics, and electrophysiology, this collections includes protocols for bioluminescence and fluorescence imaging, receptor immunoprecipitation and proteomic analysis, creation and characterization of a mouse model of Parkinson's disease, real time measurement of dopamine in the brain, and modeling signal transduction in silico. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective subjects, lists of materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and convenient, Dopamine: Methods and Protocols serves as an ideal guide for students and experts alike, as well as for anyone interested in exploring the vast and crucial field of dopamine research
