Fully updated and ready to use, this second edition is an ideal guide for young investigators new to the complexities of immunology, and a valuable resource for experienced scientists wanting clear descriptions of new methods in this vital field of study.

This book is a collection of protocols, to provide novel techniques for the study of the biology of T lymphocytes. The methods described in this book do not cover all of the techniques currently used to study T cell-mediated immune responses for the simple reason that T cell immunology is probably the immunological discipline which can be investigated with the widest variety of approaches. Thechoiceofchapterswasmadetakingintoaccounttwopoints:First,manyofthe techniquesthathavebeen usedfor sometimehave beenupgraded duringthe pastfew years given the greater availability of a variety of products (i.e. cytokines, chemokines, monoclonal antibodies), of refined technical devices (i.e. novel cell culture and cell analysis equipments), and the development of novel instrumentation (i.e. multipa- metric flow cytometers, confocal microscopes). Therefore, in several chapters ''old techniques'', which remain fundamental to T cell immunology, are described in their ''modern'' versions. Secondly, the technical advancement has generated the possibility to establish novel assays to investigate T cell physiology. This is reflected in the chapters which describe the protocols that allow use of these modern approaches. The preparation of this book has required participation of several scientists, all leading experts in their respective fields. Without their enthusiastic participation, this work would not have been possible. Therefore, I thank all authors for their contri- tionsandacceptallcriticismformissingparts,orinformationordetails,forwhichonly I am responsible. I hope these protocols will be useful for young investigators who approach for the first time the complex field of immunology and for those more experienced scientists who look for concise and efficacious descriptions of novel methods.

Provides an easily accessible reference volume for cell-based phenotypic screening, written by leading researchers in the field

Covers a wide range of cell-based assay formats and systems

Presents a modular approach to experimental design, covering model biological systems, screening modalities, detection technologies, and approaches to data analysis

Comprehensive guide to developing, running, and analyzing cell-based assays


With a wide variety of investigative approaches, T cell immunology is a vital and open field of study. In T Cell Protocols, Second Edition, an international panel of experts contribute fully updated classic protocols as well as newly established novel techniques for the study of T lymphocyte biology.  Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, the chapters in this volume provide brief introductions to the topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and Notes sections which collect expert tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Up-to-date and easy to use, T Cell Protocols, Second Edition is an ideal guide for young investigators new to the complex field of immunology as well as a valuable, concise resource for experienced scientists searching for clear, efficacious descriptions of novel methods.
