Summary In Eicosanoid Protocols, Elias A. Lianos and a panel of hands-on experts present cutting-edge methods for the study of eicosanoids, including prostaglandins, thromboxanes, and leukotrienes. The readily reproducible methods described hereconcentrate on studying the regulation of expression and function of enzymes, particularly cyclooxygenase (and its two isoforms), phospholipase A2, and lipoxygenases involved in the synthesis of established eicosanoids. Additional chapters are devoted to the characterization and distribution of the thromboxane A2 receptor in tissues and the biological roles of novel eicosanoids. Timely and authoritative, the methods in this book will help their users in exploring the pathobiology of inflammation. Eicosanoid Protocols offers new and established researchers powerful, state-of-the-art tools to probe the regulation and function of eicosanoids
