Counter This laboratory guide is a collection of tested and optimized laboratory protocols for the isolation and characterization of eukaryotic RNA. This edition includes a variety of RNA-based PCR techniques, such as differential display PCR, and transcript quantification by competitive (mimic) PCR. The book focuses on how these methodologies can be used in the study of transcriptional and posttranscriptional regulation of eukaryotic genes. The liberal incorporation of flow charts, tables, and graphs facilitate learning and assist in the planning phases of projects. It is a valuable resource for investigators who wish to characterize cellular biochemistry.
