Complement Systems: Methods and Protocols is composed of 32 individual chapters that describe a variety of protocols  to purify and analyze the activity of the individual complement components or pathways.  It includes assays that describe detection  of complement SNPs,  clinical methods to evaluate complement system activation and data interpretation. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biologyseries format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.   Authoritative and practical, Complement Systems: Methods and Protocols provides a collection of well-established "classical" assays and recently developed "new" assays to analyze the complement system activation will be useful to a wide audience of scientists.
