This book provides a wealth of practical information relating to this area of intense research in cell biology. It describes the methods essential to the identification and characterization of the molecules that mediate cellular interactions in a variety of systems. Invaluable to a wide range of biological scientists, the book includes methods for preparing relevant probes, analysing adhesive and junctional interactions in multicellular organizations, determining which structural features of a relevant molecule are functionally important, and for assaying the consequences of cell-cell interactions in cell culture.

'There is a lot of valuable iinformation in this particular volume and it will certainly be of use to scientists practising in this field.' Cell Biology International, Vol. 17, No. 10, 1993
'an important but often methodologically challenging area of cell biology ... goes a long way towards demystifying the methods involved in studying cell-cell interactions in various contexts ... almost uniformly clearly written ... this book would be very useful to any newcomer to the field of cell-cell interactions ... a rich resource in introducing the reader to the relevant literature ... it provides an excellent start towards thoughtful and successful scientific investigation of cell-cell interactions' Anne Hermanowski-Vosatka, The Rockefeller University, New York, Trends in Cell Biology, Vol. 3, August 1993
