Key Features

* Presents detailed protocols
* Includes troubleshooting tips


Multicellular organisms must be able to adapt to cellular events to accommodate prevailing conditions. Sensory-response circuits operate by making use of a phosphorylation control mechanism known as the "two-component system."

Sections include:
Computational Analyses of Sequences and Sequence Alignments
Biochemical and Genetic Assays of Individual Components of Signaling Systems
Physiological Assays and Readouts
