Bacterial Cell Surface Techniques is the first complete practical text on the chemistry and immunochemistry of bacterial cell walls. It provides details of methods available for the preparation of cell walls and their components. All the sections are written by researchers with first-hand practical experience of the techniques. The book concentrates on techniques that are available to most laboratories and provides complete information for workers new to the field, while at the same time serving as a valuable reference work for those already engaged in cell-surface research.
Structure of Bacteria and Their Envelopes; Culture of Bacteria; Isolation and Purification of Cell Walls; Separation and Purification of Surface Components; Chemical Analysis of Envelope Polymers; Immunochemistry of Cell Surfaces; Current and Future Applications of Knowledge of Bacterial Surfaces.
